A town hall meeting in Bauxite on Monday night was the focus of discussion regarding the cityâ€™s sewer system. Specifically, Mayor Johnny McMahan discussed ways to maintain sewer grinder pumps that each resident has at their home. A cleaned-up example of a sewer grinder pump that recently failed was used as a visual aid to illustrate the issue. McMahan has proposed a half-cent increase to the cityâ€™s sales tax to fund maintenance, repairs and operations of the sewer system in Bauxite. A full story of the town hall will be in the Nov. 6 edition of The Saline Courier.
