Milton residents set to vote on water referendum Saturday
The Town of Milton holds a Water System Improvements Referendum election Saturday.
Milton hopes to borrow more than $1.67 million for various water system improvements.
They include replacing a four-inch main water under Atlantic Avenue, replacing a section of six-inch water main on Chestnut Street - from Front Street to Coulter Street and replacing a six-inch water main from Atlantic Street to Cave Neck Road.
The Town received approval for the loan (Interim interest only payments with 100-percent principal forgiveness at construction completion)from the State of Delaware’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund with an interest rate of 2% and a 20-year term.
If residents approve the referendum, construction could start as early as May.
Milton residents can vote at Goshen Hall Saturday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
