Editorial: Willmar plant plan needs fed funding
The city of Willmar is concerned about the lack of appropriation for the $15 million in federal funding authorized for the city's $86 million wastewater treatment project.
The concern is growing as the city has been waiting two years since the $15 million in funding was approved by Congress. The $15 million was approved in November 2007 when Congress in a bipartisan vote of 361-64 overcame President George W. Bush's veto of the Water Resources Development Act.
