Beaumont City Council considers $2 million wastewater study
Beaumont City Council debated on a $2 million issue.
They must decide if they will spend that money on a wastewater study due to years of sewer back-ups during rainstorms.
Some say the study is unnecessary, and the money should be spent on fixing the known problems at hand.
Opponents argue the city water department should be able to identify the problems itself, rather than hiring a consultant..
The city engineer is in favor of the study, saying it's money well spent. He adds the company has more resources to do a better, more efficient job than the city.
