Board of Works awards water bid

Thursday, December 13, 2012

The Brazil Board of Public Works and Safety had its second meeting of the month on Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 10 a.m., where it awarded Bastin-Logan Water Services for needed water work.

The city conducted a public meeting on Dec. 6, where three bids were read off. After considering all three bids, city officials chose Bastin-Logan bid for $107,508.

The work will include: Cleaning and inspecting the pumps and motors for wells No.7 and No. 9, replacing the filter media on wells No. 2 and No. 3 at the water treatment plant and capping abandoned well No. 1.

"It's extremely important to maintain our wells and keep that water treatment plant up to date," Brazil Mayor Brain Wyndham said, "because that is where all the water originated from."

The money for the work is coming from remaining funds from the State Revolving Fund (SRF).

Other business discussed was as follows:

* Letters outlining the new stipulations on the car wash adjustments have been sent to both Stewarts and Slacks car washes,

* Unsafe building orders were issued to two Brazil residents. The residents have been given two weeks to bring their properties up to code,

* A continuation of a waste water reduction was issued to Greenwood,

* A change order was presented and approved for a design change on Craig Park Trail, and

* The board approved payments to the CCRC for construction costs on I-70 to the HWC and to Cox, Zwerner, Gambil and Sullivan.

The next Board of Public Works and Safety meeting will take place on Thursday, Dec. 27, at 10 a.m.

We keep putting band-aids on the water system. But at some point, we will have to replace all the lines in the town. If you think the rates are high now, just wait.
