Chatfield accepts engineering proposal for St. Albans Place


Fri, Jan 17th, 2014
Posted in Chatfield Government

At the January 13 Chatfield City Council meeting councilors split the engineering responsibilities for the four 2014 street improvement projects planned. The city’s engineering firm WSB will do the engineering work for three of them. G-Cubed will do the engineering work for St. Albans Place.

At the November 25 meeting the council had approved the proposal from WSB for all four projects. G-Cubed had offered to do the work for utility improvements on St. Albans Place. Mark Welch had completed extensive work in this area related to the EZ Fabricating project and the Lone Stone Subdivision a few years ago. At the time of this meeting the council didn’t feel they had numbers that would make the bids comparable and Dillon Dombrovski, WSB, suggested they would need to review the earlier G-Cubed work, resulting in minimal savings.

Since then, City Clerk Joel Young worked with both Dombrovski and Welch. WSB agreed to separate out the projects and offered to do the utilities and road engineering work for St. Albans Place for the not to exceed price of $24,600. G-Cubed offered a flat rate price of $11,500 for the utility and engineering work for St. Albans Place. To save money the council approved the bid from G-Cubed for just the St. Albans Place work.

Councilor Paul Novotny noted that in the feasibility report the estimated probable cost of the four projects was significantly higher than expected. He said they will meet with Mike Bubany to consult as to the financial impact of the projects.

War Memorial

Jerry Baudoin updated the council on modifications to the planned memorial proposal submitted by the Chatfield American Legion Club to be installed in City Park.

He no longer felt it was a good idea to move the present memorial because it might be damaged if moved. Baudoin said they had put together a list of 500 to 600 names starting with World War II veterans to be placed on the stone. The stone is to be dark with white lettering. Because of the number of names and the desire to have space long into the future, two smaller companion stones may be needed.

Six inch by ten inch pavers are to be installed with names of contributors. Novotny said he was concerned about the amount of room available in the location between the canon and the current war memorial. Two benches are planned on each side of the paved walkway. The flag pole would have to be moved.
