Questions for the candidates are being drafted by the councilmen who are to file them today at City Hall.

* Granting the Water and Wastewater Department's request to hire two construction contractors who will expand the city's sewage treatment plant and build a 10-million-gallon holding tank - all on property between Rock Creek Park and the current location of the water and sewer plants.

The contracts total almost $13.14 million of which $2 million is federal stimulus funds. The balance is being borrowed through the state revolving loan fund.
