Hutto City Council is set to discuss funding options for several high-priority water, wastewater and transportation projects at an Aug. 4 meeting.

During a previous budget discussion July 21, council received a presentation outlining an array of projects with projected costs totaling nearly $356 million over the next five years.

The water and wastewater projects presented have total projected costs of $105.7 million and $165.7 million, respectively. The highest-priority projects include construction of several new lift stations, pump stations and water lines to improve the city's water and wastewater capacities.

Projected costs for the outlined transportation projects total $93.5 million. High-priority projects include improvements at several intersections along FM 1660 and construction of new arterial roads near the megasite.

At the Aug. 4 meeting, council will receive another presentation before discussing how to fund and prioritize the projects.

Council is scheduled to vote on approving the fiscal year 2022-23 budget on Sept. 1.
