LIMA — The city will install a $390,000 booster station to improve water pressure in the city’s south side and allow for a waterline extension.
City Council will receive a letter Monday from Deputy Utilities Director Michael Caprella about the project. Council will vote on legislation authorizing the project at a later date.
The St. Johns Road Booster Station Project will include installing booster pumps at the recently constructed water tower at Central Point Industrial Park and two pressure-reducing stations in the existing water distribution system. That will allow increased pressure in the area, Caprella said. It will also pave the way for a new waterline to Westminster.

•Vote on entering into a contract with Reineke Ford for the Lima Police Department.
