The City Council on Wednesday agreed to proceed with plans for a sewer system that will allow access to all residents in the Gartel-Fuerte area, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Walnut.
The council directed staff to begin collecting bids for the work, which City Engineer Ron Kranzer estimated will cost about $625,000. Much of that will be recouped by the city when property owners connect to the sewer system, Kranzer said. The fee for the linkup will be about $4,000 per household, he said.
If the bidding process goes according to plan, construction could be completed as early as Oct. 31, Kranzer said.
