2012 Public Works projects and purchases


Fri, Jul 27th, 2012
Posted in Chatfield Government

By Karen Reisner

David Morrill, McGhie and Betts, reported to the Chatfield City Council at their July 23 meeting that they had received six bids for the 2012 Water Distribution Improvements. The low bid was from Zenke, Inc. of La Crescent with a bid of $116,261.50. Councilors Josh Thompson and Dave Frank were absent.

Councilor Paul Novotny inquired about an easement. Morrill said he had spoken with the property owner who seemed OK with the concept, but the easement has not been completed. He added that the bid is good for 30 days. Novotny wanted to wait until the easement was in place before awarding the contract and Mayor Don Hainlen agreed. Morrill advised the council to let the contractor know of their intent to move forward while the easement detail was worked out.

Superintendent of City Services Tony Lammers recommended the low quote of $4,195 from B and D Sealcoating to sealcoat the Library parking lot, the parking area around the water tower and the booster station, and the walking path on Hillside Drive. The low quote was accepted by the council.

Lammers explained the city’s locator equipment needs to be replaced as it is old and doesn’t work very well. The cost of new updated equipment will be $3,600 and be expensed from the Water Fund. The purchase of the equipment was approved as recommended by the Public Works Committee.

Lammers described how a handheld GPS device would aid in more precise mapping in utility infrastructure elements including hydrants, water valves, manholes, and catch basins. The coordinates through GPS software result in a map which will be used by public works personnel. Lammers said they wouldn’t need to buy software. The purchase of the device was approved at a cost of less than $600. Over time the public works crew will build a database.
