OGDENSBURG — City Council will hold a work session at 2 p.m., Aug. 12, at the Dobisky Center.

At the work session, representatives from the Development Authority of the North Country and Environmental Design & Research will conduct a detailed update to the on-going Wastewater Treatment Plant Capital Improvement Project, explain the critical items that are not yet funded and respond to any questions and concerns about the project and the agreement with the village of Heuvelton.

The $40 million project, which spent more than four years in the planning process is not expected to be completed until January, 2022. Wastewater from Heuvelton is not expected until the last quarter of 2022.

The plant was built in 1965, and was partially updated in 1978.

The city has been under order to rehabilitate the plant by the Department of Environmental Conservation for the past several years.

The session is open to the public. Social distancing guidelines will be followed.
