RELEASE: Rep. Myers Introduces Legislation to Fund Minnetonka Beach Water Treatment Plant

Monday, January 30, 2023

St. PaulMN–State Representative Andrew Myers, R-Tonka Bay, introduced legislation today that would provide funding for the construction of a new water treatment plant in Minnetonka Beach. House File 1087 would appropriate $6.6 million in capital investment funding to the city for site preparation, including demolition of the existing water treatment plant, and to predesign, design, engineer, construct and equip a new water treatment plant.

“Focusing on clean, accessible, and safe water is something I have worked on for years as a member of the city council and parks chair in our community,” said Myers. “Continuing that tradition, as your State Representative, I am honored to work with city leaders, engineers, and residents as we work to build a new water treatment plant in our area. This will be one of many steps I take with local leaders to address these issues in Your Backyard.”

The bill has been referred to the House Capital Investment Committee where it awaits its first hearing.
