Taylor looking to get its own wastewater treatment facility

TAYLOR, AL. (WTVY) The city of Taylor is looking to grow and one big way to attract new business is having its own wastewater treatment facility.

The plant will turn wastewater into clean drinking water.

Right now, the city of Dothan services Taylor but because of regulations from the EPA, prices are expected to rise.

Mayor Billy Snell says Taylor plans to finance the $2.5 million dollars needed to build the plant.

The city bought 70-acres on Taylor Road.

Snell says,
"We will be able to have denser neighborhoods, which means more neighborhoods, and with land values the way they are, it will look better for developers who want to come in."

And he says that's the goal.

Snell says,
"605 is becoming a major corridor for people coming down 231 to the beach, people are relocating to Taylor and we see it as a great place."

There will be a meeting with the public to discuss the details and get feedback.

The meeting is this Thursday (June 14th) at 6pm here at city hall.
