Huntertown Town Council members will consider an ordinance establishing the towns sewer service area at 6 p.m. Monday at the Town Hall, 15617 Lima Road.
During a meeting this month, council members unanimously approved a new drinking water service area extending four miles beyond the towns corporate limits.
Huntertown is in the process of constructing a $1.8 million water filtration plant at Lima and Carroll roads, part of an overall $4.5 million project to improve the capacity and pressure of the towns water system.
Sewer services are provided by Fort Wayne City Utilities, which has provided wholesale sanitary sewer service to the town of about 5,000 since 1998. That contract expired April 27, but City Utilities has continued to provide services.
Town officials want to build their own $11.2 million wastewater treatment plant, but the Indiana Department of Environmental Management turned down Huntertowns request for a sewage plant permit about a year ago.
The council appealed the IDEM decision, which now goes before the Indiana Office of Environmental Adjudication, and recently filed for a third extension of that appeal.
