ocra grant update
AME Consulting has completed the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) Master Utilities Planning Grant which is a comprehensive look into the Town's Drinking Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Utilities. The study consisted of site visits to multiple water plants and wastewater plants, existing condition assessments, alternative evaluations, asset management plans, and the study document which is approximately 500 pages in length. The process included many meetings with the town council, planning committee, and stakeholders. The highest priority is for a wastewater treatment plant capacity and process improvements project. Other needs and recommendations include a new water treatment plant and various improvements to sewer lines, water mains, and drainage infrastructure. OCRA has completed its first round of comments. AME Consulting is currently working to address those comments and resubmit the revised study back to OCRA. Once OCRA approves the final Study, Town Council will take action to approve a resolution to adopt the Study.

$100 for 1st Place
Our Utility Department will be picking up leaves throughout Swayzee beginning November 1st through November 30th.
The Utility team asks the following:
The Town of Swayzee recently released its annual Water Quality Report (CCR) for 2020.
The EPA requires community water systems to deliver a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), also known as an annual drinking water quality report, to their customers each year by July 1st. These reports provide Americans with information about their local drinking water quality. Your CCR can help you make informed choices about the water you drink.
The Town of Swayzee is honoring the memory and service of our Hometown Heroes by displaying banners throughout the town. Residents may purchase a banner in honor of their hero. A hero must be a current or former resident of Swayzee or Sims Township and served/serving in the military or as a first responder such as:
Swayzee Volunteer Fire Department
Southwest Medic 5 Ambulance Services
Swayzee Police Department
Indiana State Police
Grant County Sheriff’s Department
Anyone who served/serving as a first responder but worked/works outside Swayzee or Sims Township
US Air Force
US Coast Guard
We are accepting one individual per one branch of service or department. Heroes in the military and a first responder will need to choose which service to be represented on the banner. (i.e. A veteran who is serving on the Fire Department may pick one of his services to be represented.)
The initial cost is $125.00 ($70.00 for banner and $55.00 for brackets). At this time banners may need to be replaced every other year, which would include an additional $125.00 fee.
April 15th, 2022
Our goal is to have the banners up in town for Memorial Days.
APPLICATION FORM & PAYMENT
Forms may be picked up at the Town Clerk's office or at swayzee.org. Please return this form along with the hero's photo with your check payable to the Town of Swayzee with memo line “HometownHeroes” to the Town Clerk's office at 213 S Washington St. , Swayzee, IN 46986.
