Michael Schultz, Council President,  Bob Stark, Deputy Director Public Works and Marshall Hallock, Finance Director testified in front of the Senate Economic Development and Housing Budget Committee on Tuesday, January 25, 2010 in support of an appropriations request the City has submitted for funding for a regional biosolids drying facility.  The City's appropriations request for $5,000,000 is included in the Senate's initial version of the 2010 Bonding Bill.  The Committee will recommend projects for inclusion in the Senate's final version of the Bill. 

The regional biosolids facility would process wastewater biosolids using steam from the waste to energy incinerator and produce a pelletized fertilizer that could be used on turf in parks and golf courses as well as on agricultural land.
