PUNTA GORDA — City leaders will travel to Sarasota County today to lobby the Southwest Florida Water Management District for grant dollars to fund a proposed $28 million reverse-osmosis water-treatment plant meant to purify the city’s water.

At a City Council meeting Wednesday, Mayor Rachel Keesling urged residents — or anyone else interested — to attend the water district’s public meeting on cooperative funding at 1:30 p.m. today at the Sarasota service office, 6750 Fruitville Road. The water district, better known as Swiftmud, will hear from stakeholders and applicants about the projects that are vying for funding, as well as reviewing project rankings and staff’s final recommendations.
