North Port commission takes initial steps towards citywide sewer

NORTH PORT – The city of North Port has both a plan to expand water and sewer within 29 areas of the city originally planned by General Development Corp. as well as funding for design of the first of those phases, after a 3-2 vote Monday night.

But the five-member City Commission is still a long way from green-lighting a major residential expansion that many residents feel will hurt them financially.

All three board members who approved a $474,796 design contract with Kimley Horn & Associates for design of the first phase pledged to not approve starting any expansion that was too costly for residents.
