Hornbeck's decades-old water tower slated for revamp

HORNBECK -- The Town of Hornbeck's 50-year-old water tower is slated for a revamp.

According to Mayor Clarence Beebe, planning is underway and the project will be bid in the near future.

Beebe said the town received around $180,000 in state money for the $240,000 project. The town will put up the remaining $60,000.

Beebe said the tower has been painted before with minor repairs through the years, but this will be a rehabilitation project to include sandblasting, repairs, a line upgrade and other work.

"This project will be inside and out, top to bottom," he said.

Beebe said the Hornbeck Town Council will meet at 6 p.m. Sept. 2 and will discuss an item dealing with connecting the Hornbeck and Anacoco water systems so they can share water in times of need.

Beebe said this is part of a $500,000 capital outlay project.
