The Panora City Council meeting on March 11 began at the city’s water treatment plant. The city’s water plant supervisor, Brent Christofferson, led the council in a walk-through of the water plant as he explained plant operations and maintenance. He also shared data on the plant’s capacity and production numbers.

“We pumped 52 million gallons last year,” Christofferson said, although he added that the plant has the capability to pump much more if needed.

Following the water plant tour, the council reconvened at city hall for the remainder of the meeting. The council approved the second reading of the water ordinance and a resolution for grant support for the grant application to put electric lines underground.  

The council’s next regular meeting will be Monday, March 25 at 5:30 p.m. The public is welcome. Interested persons may attend in person or electronically by visiting the website https://meet.goto.com/cityofpanora or by phone 1-312-757-3121 (Access Code 295-099-701, Audio PIN 220#).
