Brian Malm of Bolton & Menk Engineering addresses Ostrander City Council

Posted in Ostrander Government

Much like some of their neighboring towns, Ostrander is looking to update their water and sewer systems. On Monday, April 1, Brian Malm of Bolton & Menk Engineering Company addressed the council and presented them with two documents needed to move forward with requested grants monies.

The city is looking to replace the water mains and towers that are each over 50 years old and out of service life, as well as update the sewer. The projected cost for the entire project is estimated to be $5.5-6 million and the project would likely break ground in 2015. Malm informed the council they were eligible to apply for up to $2.5 million in grants from Rural Development. He did, however, stress that $2.5 million was a preliminary and estimated number.

A bill rate study will be conducted to determine how to cover the cost of the rest of the project. Like most communities, Ostrander may have to raise the cost of services to residents.

Fillmore County will also be updating the main street of Ostrander this year, as it is part of their County Road 1 project. The county will fund up to $1.5 million for the project.

Public Works Director, Jimmie Dean, reported great news that was well received by the council. The city had been awarded a FEMA grant of $16,451.10 to cover repairs to the City Hall. The hall had been damaged previously by spring thaw and rains, causing flood damage in the lower level and externally. The repairs are now finished and city can sigh with relief since the grant was approved.
