Taneytown officials will spend $27,600 on preliminary engineering studies to rehabilitate sewer mains and other work associated with a new sewage plant.
The work is part of a major project to construct a sewage treatment plant and rehabilitate aging, leaking sewer mains that have created backups into homes during heavy rains.
The City Council awarded a contract to Acer Engineers & Consultants Inc. of Baltimore.
City Manager Charles "Chip" Boyles said the engineering work is required for Taneytown's application for a Rural Development (formerly the Farmers Home Administration) grant. If the city wins federal financing, Taneytown will be reimbursed for the engineering, he said.
