Tusayan Sanitary District And Town Enter Into Intergovernmental Agreement

August 28, 2021

Signaling yet another partnership for the new administration, the Town of Tusayan has entered into an intergovernmental agreement with the Tusayan Sanitary District to get a better fix on floodplain issues in addition to partnering on other public infrastructure repairs and improvements, such as public lighting, sidewalks, parks, recreational facilities, and utility projects.

As the town boundaries and the sanitary district overlap, the agreement makes sense and will save both entities time and money. The two year agreement was approved at the August Town Council meeting.

Sanitary District Board Chairman Pete Shearer is pleased with the agreement, "It's great that TSD and the Town are working very hard to make Tusayan a safer place to live. By joining forces and resources we are much more likely to succeed in flood protection. Hopefully we can continue working together to improve our community and to make this small community an even better place to live and to raise a family."

The privately funded sanitary treatment facility was built in Tusayan in 1972. The district was formed in 1978. All of the property in the Town is connected to the sanitary sewer system operated by the District.
