The Mount Vernon Board of Public Works and Safety agreed at their Thursday, Jan. 24, meeting for City Street Commissioner Roy Maynard to request quotes for Sawmill storm sewer work. Maynard will ask contractors to meet him at the site for review of the work specifications he has completed. He stated that he hoped to contact more than three contractors and will ask the quotes be submitted to Clerk-Treasurer Cristi Sitzman no later than Thursday, Feb. 7, at 11 a.m. Quotes will be opened that same day at 4 p.m. during the Board of Works meeting.
Earlier, Wastewater Superintendent Rodney Givens reported the pipe down W. Second Street is cracked, and the contractor will need to fix it. He said Aaron Burke with engineering firm Bernardin Lochmueller & Associates will meet with the contractor, Kieffer. He said it looks as if the backfill wasn’t done properly. He added that a one-year warranty is in effect from the substantial completion date.
Near the end of the meeting, board member Steve Fuelling reported two items were left to complete at the riverfront: the electrical boxes and the concession stand. At his recommendation, the board voted to approve the fabrication, mounting and plug-ins for five electrical boxes by Gottman Electric at a total cost of $7,625 ($1,525 each).
In other business:
•Wastewater Superintendent Rodney Givens reported, according to his information, that the east side bridge project is still scheduled to be completed by mid-February. He added that the lift station should hold during the four-hour down time, and the VacCon truck will be there on standby.
•Street Commissioner Roy Maynard reported he had cancelled attendance at the Purdue Pest Conference after finding that the course is offered at closer locations for a lower rate—and with the same amount of CEUs upon completion.
•Board member Fuelling reported that the pipe is on-site for work at the west side storm sewer project. Street Commissioner Maynard added that his department will be ready to begin work once Bernardin Lochmueller & Associates provide the elevations.
•Board member Bill Curtis is researching possible cost savings by receiving bids for the city’s gasoline.
The Mount Vernon Board of Public Works and Safety will meet again Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013, at 4 p.m. in the City Hall Annex.
