Water & Sewer Board is meeting tonight (7:00 p.m., Warrant Committee room) to review bids and receive recommendations from its engineer/consultant, Environmental Partners. Please do not post this until Water & Sewer Board has had a chance to review. Thanks Mike

Favorable bids were received this afternoon.

The apparent low bid of just over $3m was from Phoenix Fabricators. The engineer’s estimate was $3.3M.


I will bring a summary to tomorrow evening’s meeting and an overall total project budget update.
