MILLERSBURG — The town of Millersburg is a step closer to making $440,000 in repairs and improvements to its wastewater treatment plant.

The Elkhart County Plan Commission recommended approval Thursday to allow the town to use funds generated by two tax increment financing districts to pay for the project. The improvements would allow the plant to become more energy efficient and handle more flow in the future.

Part of the funding for the project would come from the Millersburg I TIF District created in 2002. The district will be expiring next year, so the town plans to use the district’s remaining balance.

The remaining expenses of the wastewater treatment plant project would be paid for out of the Millersburg II TIF District, the former Carriage RV complex.

Before moving forward with the project, the town will need approval from the Elkhart County Board of Commissioners with the plan finalized by the Elkhart County Redevelopment Commission.

 FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2012, file photo, women walk by a statue of Joseph and Emma Smith outside the church office building during the 182nd Semiannual General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City. Mormon church founder Joseph Smith had an underage bride and was married to other men’s wives during the early days of the faith when polygamy was practiced, a new church essay reveals. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says most of Smith’s wives were between 20 and 40 years old but that one was just 14. While part of the church's early days, polygamy has been banned in the faith since 1890.  (AP Photo/The Salt Lake Tribune, Scott Sommerdorf, File)
