Bainbridge-- A project planned for the sewer system infrastructure in Bainbridge will get some help from the state government.  

Bainbridge was approved for a Georgia Fund loan of more than $8 million to help pay for water and sewer system infrastructure projects. They plan to extend sanitary sewer service to every home in the city limits.  

Chris Hobby, Bainbridge City Manager said, "It allows us to go ahead and do the work now. We were depending on Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax money to fund this work. Well that money comes in slowly, about $2 million a year."

The money will also allow them to convert 5,000 residential water meters into an automated meter reading system.
