Water, sewer, stormwater upgrades coming to Tifton
Major infrastructure improvements will soon be coming to Tifton.
The Tifton City Council approved its Priority Project Plan for Water, Sewer and Stormwater Improvements at its meeting Monday.
City Manager Pete Pyrzenski said this plan could encompass as many as 15 or 16 individual projects, with some of them combining to cost a few million dollars from SPLOST.
Pyrzenski said the plan will tackle some of the city's biggest issues right now, with water lines at the top of that list.
He said they'll be replacing and upgrading those lines in some of the city's neighborhoods, while they'll be making repairs to other areas, like storm water.
"We've reviewed master plans," Pyrzenski said. "We've talked about the most troubling areas within the city and into the county service areas, and we're going to address them."
The city will be planning and bidding this work out in the next six months, according to Pyrzenski, and then the work itself will start after that.
