The City of New Cumberland’s water project is nearing completion. City Council learned at Monday’s meeting that by the end of January, the 300,000 tank will be complete with the Eden Valley water line replacement underway. The foundation has also been poured for a new tank with the old tank to go out of service when that is complete. A total of three new water tanks have been included in the water project along with new lines and remote meter readers.
City Clerk Tammy Jenkins reported year-to-date revenues of $269,377.31 with expenditures of $292,587.08. The City currently has a balance of $51,000.00 in American Recovery Plan Act funding.
