This meeting was called to review the Water and Sewer Phase II tenders and accept the lowest tender and recommendations of the Town Engineer.

 

Town Engineer informed members that H. Wareham and Sons was the lowest tender at $795,935.47 which was approximately $50,000 under the estimate.  He advised that the residences that already have their sewer lines installed will be connected when the tank and lift station are completed.  This phase goes as far as the Apartments across from the wharf.  He advised that OH&S requirements will be met during the project, especially with the number of flagspersons on site.  The project duration is approximately 3 months. 

 

Members asked to keep the festival dates in mind for traffic especially on Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th and to keep the road open during this period.  Jim said they could work up lanes, etc. during this time.

 

Members suggested to use the extra funding indicated above to continue up harbour with blasting the upper side of the Apartment Building.

 

Motion-4115-17-Councillor M. Bailet/Councillor D. Howell

Resolved to accept the lowest Tender, H. Wareham & Sons Ltd. @ $795,935.47 as recommended by Engineer Jim Harty and proceed to the next step for awarding of the Tender.

 

In favour:        Councillor D. Howell              Councillor K. Blackwood

Councillor S. Winsor               Councillor M. Bailet

Opposed:         0

Abstaining:      0

Motion Carried.

 

It was suggested by members to apply to Gas Tax Funding to use our funding for a back-up generator for the lift station.

 

There was a discussion on pigging lines as there have been complaints of dirty water recently.  Engineer Jim Harty advised that pigging is not a good idea right now because the pig can actually get stuck in the old cast iron lines and create bigger problems. Right now there’s no cleaning velocity and with gravity flow, the flow required is just not there.  He also said flushing through the hydrants will work better and be set up differently when we have all new lines.

 

Meeting was adjourned at 8:25 p.m.
