JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)

Jefferson City voters will decide in April whether to allow the city to raise millions of dollars through bonds to upgrade its sewer system.

The city council voted unanimously Monday night to put a $44 million bond issue on the April ballot. The money would pay for improvements and extensions of the sewer system, according to the ordinance authorizing the ballot issue.

Public Works Director Matt Morasch told the city council that low interest rates on the current bond market will work in the city's favor.

Jefferson City voters will also choose city council and school board members in the April 5 election. Filing in the city opened this week.

  1. Good old American Water doing what they do best – taking the taxpayers to the cleaners. I’d hate to pay for utilities in Jefferson City. Sky high already and edging upward by the day.
