FORT PIERCE, Fla. - Fort Pierce commissioners will consider a proposal to form an ad-hoc committee charged with exploring the relocation of the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

The city’s planning director suggested a seven-member committee, one representative appointed by each commissioner and the mayor, plus a Fort Pierce Public Utilities Authority (FPUA) appointee and a county appointee.

Rebecca Grohall says the committee would study all aspects of the relocation including: developing a cost estimate and exploring and pursuing different funding methods.

The FPUA water treatment plant sits on a 36-acre lot on Hutchinson Island. 

A meeting held in 2012 suggested the relocation could make way for a hotel, marina, stores and housing.

The meeting planned for Monday starts at 8:30 a.m. at City Hall.
