Vote set for water, asphalt projects

By The Mercury

City commissioners are scheduled to vote on an elevated water storage tank for the Blue Township area during their meeting Tuesday.

The elevated water storage tank is a collaborative project between the city and Pottawatomie County Rural Water District No. 1.

The tank is supposed to supply additional water for the growing Blue Township area.

Phoenix Fabricators and Erectors of Avon, Ind., was the low bidder for the tank portion of the project at around $1.7 million.

Bartlett and West Inc. of Manhattan, the designers for the Blue Township waterline extension project, submitted a proposal to provide construction administration and observation services for an amount not to exceed $450,000.

Two street maintenance items are up for commision vote as well.

The street maintenance asphalt project involves new asphalt on West Anderson Avenue from Anneberg Park to the intersection of Scenic Drive and Kimball Avenue, and on Kimball Avenue east of the roundabout.

The project also has Nova Chip application on Scenic Drive from Anderson Avenue south to Miller Parkway.

Nova Chip treatments are designed to extend and improve the existing asphalt surfaces that are structurally sound.

Shilling Construction Company Inc. of Manhattan was the low bidder at $441,337.50.

The street maintenance concrete projects involve work on a portion of Anneberg Park on Anneberg Circle and the Northview area. The Northview project includes portions of Strong Avenue, Hayes Drive, Beck Street and Gross Street.

Bayer Construction Company Inc. of Manhattan was the low bidder for both projects at a total of $369,355.
