Lorraine receives KDHE loan

POSTED: December 4, 2012 7:00 a.m.

The Lorraine City Council received good news at its Nov. 20 meeting. The 30-year loan of up to $90,000 from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to renovate the city’s sewer lift station was approved.
Don Hellar of EBH and Associates of Pratt, the project engineer, estimated it would take 30 days to get the loan contract from KDHE, He also estimated it would be four to five months before any work would begin.
Hellar said KDHE requested the City of Lorraine put more money into a reserve fund to help cover repairs to the structure during the life of the loan. However, the council decided it would wait one year and evaluate the actual expenses of the station. The rates could be adjusted at that time, if needed.
Lorraine City clerk Michael Boyer was instructed to call KDHE and request they complete the final loan paperwork.
In other business:
• Approval was given to a request by M and H Tank Service in Lorraine to install a culvert in the ditch on Wichita Avenue as long as the drainage is not adversely effected.
• Larry Klug, Lorraine city maintenance man, said water samples taken from several places around town came back normal after being tested by KDHE.
Klug said the city’s unexplained loss of water went back up to over 20 percent last month.
The next meeting of the Lorraine City Council will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, at city hall.
