Council quietly ponies up

Friday, June 19, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Proposed increases to the Waller Creek Tunnel project and the Water Treatment Plant 4 budget passed with no discussion at City Council on Thursday. As the Austin Monitor reported earlier this week, the Waller Creek Tunnel project budget will increase by $5.6 million, though the city hopes not to have to use those funds. The Water Treatment Plant 4 settlement will cost the city about $4.6 million, bringing the total cost of the project to $528.1 million.
