Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - November 2, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin Village Taking Steps to Have Its Own 1 m t It t S r System; Other Projects Studied Combined Locks This long-time-dependent.on surrounding communities making its move toward independence. -s .Outsiders have chuckled over the fact.that the village gets its water supply from Kimberly, electrical power from Wis- consin-Michigan at Appleton and sewage is handled by the city of Kaukauna. Water System Engineering work now Is underway for the Combined Locks water system. When work is started on the system it is estimated that it will take a year and a half to complete the project. A well will have to >be drilled and a tower erected pumping equip- ment installed. In the last two years the vil- lage has seen rapid growth. Three new plats opened and new home construction has 'just jumped .to a record. ..'With the new home devel-. the popula- tion has increased. Feeling the'effect of the population the most is the state graded school. Enrollment has been hiked rapidly and the school district is faced with the pros- pect of having to build addi- tional classrooms. Future Outlook A long range look into the future can see the village con- structing its own sewage dis- posal'plant. Handling of it by Kaukauna works out well at the present even though the past is dotted with disputes between the city and village over the sewage treatment. The two communities went to court at one time to set- tle a hassle over.the amount Kaukauna should charge Combined Locks each month for handling the sewage. Combined Locks "has one major industry, the Combin- ed Locks Paper company, to help with the tax problem most villages are confronted with. With a major project such as the water system, the future tax picture is not bright. One of the most prob- able steps that will be taken is a change in the assessed valuation percentage. Gfrowing -pains are being felt by this village .but the pains are being soothed by the ever so little air of inde- pendence being realized.
