CENTERBURG — A new wastewater reclamation facility for Centerburg came a step closer to reality Monday evening with the awarding of nearly $7 million in contracts for the project following a second round of bidding.
Kirk Brothers Co. Inc. of Alvada, Ohio, was selected by Village Council to construct a new facility on Lock Road and, upon completion, to demolish the existing plant that has been in service for half a century. Kirk Brothers was recommended by the project engineering firm Bird and Bull Inc., as providing the lowest and best bid of $5.012 million. Losing bids were from Adena Corp., PAE and Associates Inc. and Simonson Construction Services. Also rejected was a proposal from S.G. Loewendick and Sons Inc. to handle only the demolition phase of the project.
Bidding was quite competitive, with a difference of about 5 percent between the low and high bids. The decision to go with the recommendation from Bird and Bull followed discussion in executive session, and enabling legislation passed unanimously.
