Harmony plans for new well


Fri, Jun 13th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Government

Harmony’s City Engineer Brett Grabau attended the city council meeting on June 10 with an update on a couple of projects.

The council approved moving forward with design plans for the new well. Grabau reminded the council the city has received a $250,000 DEED (Department of Employment and Economic Development) matching funds grant. The remainder of the cost will be funded through the PFA (Public Facilities Authority) at a low interest rate. Grabau said the city’s PPL (Project Priority List) score was within the range to qualify for low-interest funding. They will know by the end of September if they are approved.

The DEED grant will expire in late 2015, so Grabau suggested they go ahead with design plans to get ahead of the game. This way they will be ready to go when the PFA financing is approved.

The council approved. City Administrator Jerome Illg said they are not committed to the PFA just by agreeing to move forward.

The pump house and the well will be two separate projects with two different contractors. The total cost for construction and engineering is just under $700,000.

The street project at 1st Avenue was scheduled to begin June 9, but has been delayed until the week of the 16th. The council approved the change order, which changes the pipe to PVC instead of the previously approved DIP (Ductile Iron Pipe). This change saved the city $7,000. The total cost of the project will be $923,187, which will be split between the city and the county.

Grabau said they will be close to getting the new curb and gutter by the Fourth of July. They will meet earlier that week and see where things are and make a plan to get ready for the vendors.

Visitors Center

Ralph Beastrom approached the council on behalf of the Harmony Chamber of Commerce, the Historical Society, Habitat for Humanity, and the Harmony Area Foundation. He explained the improvements that will be done at the Visitor’s Center regarding the small room previously used by the Habitat for Humanity staff.

One idea was to have an office there for the Harmony Area Foundation. Beastrom also spoke of the Historical Society and the expanding collection of items they have for display. The original intent was to have temporary displays with borrowed items, but it has not worked this way, as many people have donated their historical artifacts. Beastrom said there are vo .....
