Looks like Lake County International will get a pot to poop in after all. The implement dealer on the west edge of Madison contacted the city last spring about hooking into the municipal sewer system in conjunction with the business's big expansion project. Owner Jeff Bloom filed a written request a couple weeks ago. The city commission's initial response to the prospect of a new industrial customer pumping money into the city's sewer system seemed surprisingly lukewarm.
But apparently the city sees the benefits of connecting another big customer who, unlike its competitor across town, is willing to foot its own bills for infrastructure. Included in tomorrow night's commission agenda (pp. 18–21) is an agreement between the city and Lake County International to hook 'em up.
