CORBIN — By Sharae Myers / Staff Writer
Williamsburg officials awarded Akins Excavating the $317,000 contract for water and sewer work at the future building site for the Whitley County Health Department and the Tractor Supply, which is currently under construction.
The vote came Monday during the council’s regular monthly meeting.
The $400,000 for the development infrastructure was acquired from coal severance funds from the Department of Local Government.
Also the council approved a resolution for the intent to apply for a community development block grant application for the Whitley County Health Department for construction of a new facility behind the old Williamsburg Motel site off exit 11.
During the council meeting, a representative from H.D.R. Quest Engineers presented an update to the city regarding its concurred order for mandated sewer upgrades to the Department of Waste Water Management.
In April, the city was approved for a $1 million loan for mandated sewer upgrades that was contingent on raising water and sewer rates. Those rate increases took effect July 1.
According to the five-year plan recommended for sewer upgrades, work will start at Briar Creek Park to relocate the pump station and force main to the river side of the railroad.
In the plan, the project has to start by December and be finished by June 2014.
Council member Troy Sharp proposed an ordinance be established that would grant the city to cite people who discharge or blow grass clippings onto the streets.
Mayor Roddy Harrison stated he would review current ordinances to see if any address keeping clippings out of the city drains and sewer system.
