Wednesday, January 23, 2013

On Wednesday, the Brazil Board of Public Work and Safety approved the renewal of a fire contract with a local business.

Annually, the City of Brazil draws up fire contracts with area businesses as well as Brazil Township.

Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham said businesses within the industrial park draw up the contracts with the city for the fire protection, a process which has been going on for several years.

Meanwhile, the board also approved an additional payment of $7,850.07, for AECOM Technical Services, Indianapolis, for more identifying of utilities and coordinating the movement of the utilities in the future.

The company has been working with the city in regard to the Pogue's Run project.

Work for the project has to be completed by the City of Brazil in order for the United States 40 project to begin.

The board also approved bond invoices for Cox, Zwerner, Gambill and Sullivan, LLP, in addition to Bingham Greenebaum Doll, LLP, to help fund the detention pond and betterment cost for the U.S. 40 project.

Wyndham added the bond invoices were also for the Brazil Wastewater Plant to get some items in compliance.

He said the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) recently identified some items at the plant that were required to up upgraded.

"It was pretty much mandated work," he said.
