Sewer projects highlight agenda

Council to vote on three projects

ROCK FALLS – City Council members will vote on three items all related to the city’s sanitary sewer system at tonight’s meeting.

They are two agreements and a bid totaling just less than $900,000, although the bulk of that cost is in the bid for the sanitary sewer rehabilitation project.

The council is expected to vote to give final approval and award the bid to Insituform Technologies USA of Chesterfield, Missouri. The amount of the project would be $819,260. The company specializes in rehabbing and restoring sewer pipes.

Along with that bid, there are two agreements on the agenda related to the sewer system that council members will address: Stanley Consultants is the company looking to perform the work on these sewer projects.

One agreement would cover construction observation and administration of the sanitary sewer rehabilitation project at a cost of $56,100 while the other would deal with planning, construction observation and administration of the screw pump rehabilitation project at a cost of $17,900.

Other items on the agenda include sending a request to the planning and zoning commission for a zoning change from residential to business designation for a property located at 2000 E. U.S. Route 30. Kim Thome and Bruce Willett are asking for the zoning change.

Tri-County Opportunities Council also is seeking a certification of local approval from the City to go along with a grant the agency is applying for through the Emergency Solutions Grant Program to then be applied to a Rapid Re-Housing Program locally.

To attend

The Rock Falls City Council next meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 603 W. 10th St. 

The agendas will be posted at and at City Hall. Call 815-622-1100 for more information.
