Fenton Studies Proposal For New Sewer System FENTON - Residents of Fenton and members of the town council are being asked to study a proposal for possible construction of a town sewage system and lagoon-style treatment plant. The town council heard a Federal Home Administration man talk on financing at its last meeting. If the program were adopted, total cost would be about $250,000. There was evidence that at least a part of this total would be contributed through one of the various Federal aid programs. At present Fenton is served entirely by individual septic tanks as a disposal system. Town council members have had the proposal before them for some time, and have been advised to obtain the reaction of town residents as to the proposal. If a substantial majority seem to favor the plan, efforts to obtain a government financing grant would be pushed. As outlined in preliminary study, the lagoon-type disposal system would have to be located on ground purchased by the town, probably east of Fenton. The lagoon-type is the same general plan as the one adopted by both Hurt and Tltonka In recen 1 years.
