OZARK, Ala. (AP) - The Ozark Utilities Board says it’s spending $5 million in issued bonds on a trio of capital improvement projects.

The Dothan Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1D94LIg ) the board’s general manager, Don Halford, says about half the money - $2.2 million - is going toward replacing mechanical equipment at Ozark’s 30-year-old Southside Waste Water Treatment Plant. He says the plant remains operational, but most of his equipment has worn out after three decades.

Another $500,000 of the bond money has gone toward replacing 13,000 feet of galvanized water mains. Finally the utility board plans to spend $2.3 million digging up and rehabilitating old sewer lines dating back to the 1960s.

The Ozark Utilities Board is a separate entity from the city of Ozark.
