We have chosen 2 areas in town to complete major storm water work:
Ditch improvements on 8th and 9th Street and a new storm sewer along 9th Street.
Channel and culvert improvements along Lyon Street from 4th to 1st Street
Due to the implementation of bioswales and the citizens of Murray meeting the low income guidelines we were able to obtain a $300,000 CDBG grant and a USDA loan in the amount of $610,000. The interest rate on the loan is 1.3750% and it will be a 40 year term. Beginning July 1, 2018 there will be a storm water utility charge of $5.29 per month for each parcel in Murray. This charge will raise .5% per year and will be just enough to cover the annual loan payments. Boyd Construction will be completing the work with a start date of no later than May 1, 2018.
