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.

Like hundreds of thousands of soldiers back from the war in Iraq, Watt has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and is finding that complicates things in the workplace. He takes medication to control his dark moods, he's had extensive counseling to help him cope with conflict and he leans on his supportive family as he wrestles with scarring memories earned a decade ago far away.  He says he is OK to return to work and that he's got medical reports to prove it. So far, SunEdison won't let him back.  The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission estimates 400,000 veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have some form of PTSD.  (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Johnny Hanson)
