Wastewater plant computer due for upgrade

GEORGETOWN — Members of the Georgetown City Council voted this week to upgrade the new computer for the wastewater treatment plant so that it will be more efficient for city operations.

The council already approved replacing the older, outdated computer at the treatment plant with a newer one from Engineered Solutions Midwest of Zionsville, Ind., at a cost of about $39,600. And the council voted to have Danville Computer Clinic further upgrade the new computer system at a cost of about $740.

Alderman Darin Readnour said the new, upgraded system will be faster and accessible to city workers remotely, allowing them to receive alerts, run diagnostics and make adjustments without having to go to the plant. It will also prepare the required reports for the Environmental Protection Agency that currently must be compiled by hand.

In other business, council members said they would pursue having a memorial plaque placed onto a large rock at the north entrance of the city in honor of Wilma Wilming, an alderwoman who died last year.

Alderwoman Janet Martin said she wanted to recognize Wilming for her service to the city.
