Vincennes Utilities officials are moving forward with plans for a new water tower on the eastern edge of Vincennes. The first moves toward the new facility were discussed at yesterday’s Vincennes Utility Services Board session.
Vincennes Utilities general manager Kirk Bouchie says the tower would be near the current Lincoln High School campus. Bouchie says the next step is approaching Vincennes City Council about a bond issue to fund the new tower.
Bouchie wants to leverage the bond issue with funding from previous bonds that are coming off the books. He says the bond issue can be paid for without increasing water or sewer rates.
