WARREN–The Warren Village Board met on Aug. 22 and heard from Derek Thompson of Fehr-Graham, who presented to the board on an update on the village’s wastewater facility plan and water project that it had been developing with Community Funding and Planning of Stockton.
Thompson noted that the first step is to list all of the potential project plans in one plan, since it is a requirement to secure a low-interest-rate loan through the EPA, along with possible loan forgiveness. Some of the listed projects can be scaled back.
The village and Fehr-Graham listed priority projects and placed them into two phases. Phase I plan includes three projects: sanitary sewer replacement on Pearl Street in conjunction with water main replacement and roadway replacement; a city-wide sanitary sewer lining project to minimize storm water going through the sewer plant; and project three is a new mechanical screen and building.
Phase II includes four projects: sanitary sewer replacement on Warren Street; electrical upgrades on the lift station; SCADA upgrades to make operations more efficient; and retrofitting the current oxidation ditch at the sewer plant.
The cost of the phases includes design, bidding, construction inspection, contingencies and project costs. The cost of phase 1 would be $8.6 million and the cost of phase 2 would be $2.6 million.
In other business, the council:
•learned that Beebe Street has been added to the street maintenance list.
•approved a quote from Raisbeck Painting in the amount of $8,200 to paint the police station.
