The town of Cedaredge is asking the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for a $100,000 grant to help with preliminary paperwork costs on the proposed new sewer treatment plant project.
The $100,000 grant, if funded, will be matched by $200,000 in the town's funds to complete necessary preliminary paperwork for the project, the board of trustees was told on June 20.
Dave Smith, public works director told the town board, "This is $300,000 to get the sewer plant project to the point where it can be put out to bid."
According to the grant application documents that were submitted, "The town is requesting a water quality improvement fund grant of $100,000. Of the amount, $80,000 will help complete the process design report (PDR), and $20,000 will help prepare the final construction documents. The remaining $200,000 required to finalize the PDR and final construction documents will be provided from the town's revenue, and should be considered as a match to the grant."
The total $300,000 is divided as $110,000 for the PDR, and $190,000 for the final construction documents (plans and specifications).
The $300,000 in paperwork costs is added to the $3.66 million estimated construction costs bringing the project total to $3.96 million, according to grant documents submitted.
In other business at its June 20 regular meeting, the Cedaredge Town Board dealt with the following matters:
• Trustees authorized removal of the cell phone repeaters from the water tank north of town. The repeaters will be placed in storage at public works. Their owner, Stelera Wireless has gone out of business and has defaulted on contract payments for using the town tanks to mount the repeaters, according to the presentation made to trustees.
• Trustees affirmed the planning commission's re-appointment of Bill Miller to a three-year term. Al Smith is the planning commission chair for the next year and Bob Michael is the vice-chair. The board also gave preliminary approval to the Sarver subdivision.blog comments powered by Disqus
