WESTLAKE — The City Council on Monday voted to begin improvements on the city’s water treatment plant.

A second water filtration system would be added to the Jones Street plant to handle increased volume from the recently opened golf course and subdivision.

The water well has been dug and filters installed, but the storage tank and extra housing have not been installed, said City Clerk Andrea Mahfouz.

The project would be funded through a Department of Health and Hospitals lowinterest loan.

Mahfouz estimated the project’s price tag at $3 million, but said the city would be required to pay 20 percent of that, with the rest covered by federal stimulus money.
