by B.J. Tomlinson
The Lansing City Council met in its regular session Monday night, December 7. After approving the Consent Agenda the Council reviewed four bids presented by Kevin Draves of WHKS Engineering for the planned Clear Creek Water/Sewer Project. The Project, postponed this fall due to an administrative issue at the Federal level, is now scheduled to begin in the spring of 2016 and be completed by August 1.
After discussion, the Council selected the low bid of $265,207 from Skyline Construction of Decorah. Approximately half of the cost of the Project will be paid by the City, and the other half from a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The Council also reviewed and approved a contract amendment with WHKS Engineering for $24,207 for engineering services to include observation and oversight of the project.
