Bids for Sewer Project
Matt discussed the bids that were received. We received 8 bids with the lowest bid from
Northland Grading & Excavating.
The PFA is administering the funds and Bolton & Menk are working on finalizing three
items in order to encumber the funds - (i) permits and licenses, (ii) funds to operate the
system and (iii) ownership of the land. Dakota County will be paying us 80% of their
portion of the construction costs up front.
We received a schedule of the construction staging map with an anticipated start date of
approximately June 19th. They are planning on having an open house which may be
before our city council meeting but need to work with Dakota County on their availability.
They will send out a newsletter regarding the date and they will do monthly newsletters
and weekly emails once the project starts.
They will also be in contact with the Fire Department as this project progresses to keep
We had discussed the individual services to properties. We had discussed that the
property owner was going to own from the home to main. As part of the project they are
installing from the main to the right of way; however, the PFA does not allow for that
portion to be paid from the public funds since an individual will own that. We can change
the ordinance to meet the needs of the PFA or install those individual services with city
money at approximately $300,000. We will discuss this at a future meeting.
