Archer Pushing for Sewer System
The wastewater system in Archer "stinks" according to city leaders. So they're asking Alachua County Commissioners for help to get a sewer system.
Archer Mayor Frank Ogborn says a $76 thousand dollar study of the current septic tank system's affect on the water quality for the rest of the county will help the city qualify for a "Small Disadvantaged Community Grant" and other funding from the federal government.
They just need the money to do the study. County Commissioners voted to write a letter of support to the Suwannee River Water Management District to help Archer move toward a sewer system. Within a month, Archer city leaders should have a response from the Suwannee River Water Management District about funding for the study.
Then the Alachua County Commission will consider funding their effort. This comes five years after County Commissioners denied Archer's request to hook up to GRU's sewage system because commissioners were then concerned that it would encourage growth between the two cities.
