MOKANE — The Mokane Board of Aldermen will hold its first meeting of 2021 on Monday evening.
On the agenda is the city's water project.
The city is currently working on an overhaul of the water system — something the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has said needs to happen.
The DNR order is the result of violations to monitoring requirements and drinking water standards dating back to 2014, when the system was under the control of the Mokane Water Co-op. The city took over the system in 2018.
In June, Mokane voters approved a nearly $2.5 million bond issue to support the project, which will involve new water lines and water meters.
Earlier this month, the city received six submissions from engineering firms in response to a request for qualifications. On Dec. 21, the board met to narrow that list of six to three firms.
Representatives from several engineering firms are expected to attend Monday's meeting, mayor-pro tem Chad Booher said.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Lions Club hall.
