Wilton Manors is a work in progress. The parks and businesses and neighborhoods thrive and seem to “just happen.”
But a lot of work happens behind the scenes and underground. At the city commission meeting on Jan. 24, the city’s Director of Emergency Management and Utilities, Dave Archacki, reported on his department’s involvement in the city’s master plan.
Much of his report focused on the city’s much-maligned water system. The report looked at current projects and long-term improvements. Ten water improvement recommendations, 10 wastewater improvement recommendations, and 10 stormwater improvement recommendations were highlights of the plan.
Archacki stressed that the order they are undertaken is often affected by other projects. If a road or underground utilities are being updated, the city will prioritize area projects to minimize public inconvenience and save money by not needing to reopen a worksite.
