The city of Chattanooga plans to issue $186,080,000 in sewer bonds in the continuing effort to upgrade its sewage system.

The bond proceeds are to cover "construction of extensions and improvements to the System; (ii) acquisition of all property, real and personal, appurtenant thereto or connected therewith; (iii) payment or reimbursement of the payment of principal of and interest on any bonds, notes or other debt obligations issued in anticipation of the Bonds."
