On May 23rd a bid opening was held for the phase one water reclamation facility improvements project. Five bids were opened and read aloud ranging from $7,070,000 to $7,738,000. The low bidder was Whittaker Construction and Excavating with a bid in the amount of $6,979.845 after accepting items A through G and N. This project will be financed through a low interest IEPA loan and will not require a rate increase since a loan was paid off in 2017 and we targeted the annual dollar amount to reflect a continuation of that old annual payment. Construction is anticipated to begin late summer/early fall of 2019 and will last approximately 18 months.
