Despite losing a recent lawsuit in court over the installation of sewer lines, Trumbull County Commissioners are moving forward with their next big sewer project.
Commissioners met on Monday during a special meeting to approve advertising for construction bids for the Kinsman Phase two Sanitary Sewer Improvements Project.
The nearly $11 million project is being funded by several state and federal grants.
The project will affect about 350 homes and businesses and is expected to take one year to complete. Commissioners hope to break ground in October
The county has $20 million in projects they are working to complete, including a $4 million project in Hubbard Township.
In July, a county magistrate ruled against the county in a lawsuit filed in 2004 by 34 property owners.The ruling states property owners, even though some must pay tap-in fees, don’t have to pay for the sewer project because they weren’t notified properly.
