In order to install the bioscrubber at the 10th Street plant, the sewer board has been working on an agreement to repurchase land it sold to Clark Memorial Hospital for $319,000.
An appraisal conducted on behalf of the sewer board set the property value at $319,375 for slightly less than one acre, and at the board’s previous meeting Sewer Board Attorney Scott Lewis said a deal had been reached to buy the property for the appraisal amount.
Last week, Lewis presented the formal purchase agreement for additional property.
The purchase is still subject to approval by the Clark County Commissioners because Clark Memorial Hospital is a county-owned hospital.
Ashack added that the air-control specialist will also be responsible for monitoring the odor control systems at the downtown and 10th Street treatment plants.
