Plymouth Board of Works to Open Wastewater Plant Construction Proposals

Plymouth IndianaThe Plymouth Board of Works will be opening proposals tonight from construction contractors for its Wastewater Treatment Plant improvement project. The city has decided to use a Guaranteed Savings Contract for the project, which allows the city to choose a contractor based on qualifications, rather than who puts in the lowest bid.

Once the proposals are opened, a committee made up of utility superintendent Donnie Davidson along with Board of Works members Mike Delp and Don Ecker Jr. will review the contractors’ qualifications and make a recommendation to the full board on February 8. Also during tonight’s meeting, city engineer Rick Gaul will present a preliminary list of street and sidewalk projects for the year.

Tonight’s Plymouth Board of Works meeting starts at 6:00 p.m., followed by the Common Council meeting at 6:30. During its meeting, the Common Council will decide whether to formally approve an update to the city’s code of ordinances to reflect the change to a seven-member council. The council was increased from five members after the city’s population surpassed 10,000.
