The planned outage will begin at 6 a.m.and will allow for main- tenance work on the electric substation located near down- town Tyler. The outage was initially scheduled for June, but City Ad- ministrator Bruce Williams said weather conditions forced the cancelation. The Tyler City Council voted for the rescheduled dates with the plan to do the work on Sun- day, Sept. 15, but if weather con- ditions aren't good, the Sept. 22 make-up date would be used. "If it rains both days we'll have to wait until the spring;' Wil- liams said during the regular city council meeting Monday night. During the meeting the coun- cil also approved the final pay estimate for the elevated water tank. The council had tabled pass- ing the final pay estimate due to issues with the installed pump that had failed on a number of occasions. City officials said the last pump installed in the water tower has had no issues. The council voted in favor of creating a new Tax Increment Finance District that will be utilized for an expansion of the Miller Legal offices on Highway 14. The TIF district will be dis- cussed again during the Sept. 9 regular council meeting.
