Lee County-- Leesburg leaders say they desperately need a new water treatment plant but they can't afford it without the county's help.
Leesburg officials say the current plant is nearing capacity. From time to time, they've also had compliance issues with the EPD. They've looked at several options including building a natural system but many feel that would just be a band-aid solution.
A better plant with greater capacity would cost about 9.8-million dollars. They say since many county residents work and go to school in Leesburg, that puts a drain on the sewage system. The population in Leesburg doubles each day.
They're asking the county for as much sales tax money as possible to build the plant.
"It's going to put a huge burden on the citizens of Leesburg to try to pay for this thing. Really, the operations and maintenance costs of the plant is going to put a pretty big burden on the citizens," said Engineer Ron Dudley.
Lee County commissioners plan to study that city request.
