Contracts for two pump stations in Jeffersonville were approved at the citys’ Sewer Board meeting Thursday and will be able to move forward.
Construction administration and inspection agreements were approved for the Lentzier Creek pump station — south pump station — which includes the interceptor pipe and a force main project and the Liters pump station — north pump station — projects.
The construction contracts for the same projects, which had been previously approved, were also signed at Thursday’s meeting.
The two projects were divided into four sections, with the first three sections related to the Lentzier Creek project. Jacobi, Toombs and Lanz Inc. will work as the inspectors on the first section with MAC Construction and Excavating building the project at a total of $5.7 million. Section two inspection will be completed by Clark Dietz Inc. and Excel Excavating Inc. will complete construction at a total of $1.98 million. The third section will be inspected by American Structurepoint and constructed by Dan Cristiani Excavating, Inc. at a total of $744,851.
The Liters force main project will be inspected by Bernardin Lochmueller and Associates, Inc. with Lykins Contracting Inc. completing construction at a total of $1.54 million.
New billing system approved
Jeffersonville’s sewer board also approved a contract for a new utility billing system.
Out of three proposals offered, which was subsequently narrowed to two possibilities for a financial and utility billing software, the sewer board approved a proposal with BS&A Software.
City Controller Monica Harmon said the total cost to replace the existing system, including hardware, software and consulting fees totals $605,400. Costs for the sewer board totaled $74,600, with $23,700 expected to come from the city’s drainage board and the remainder — $507,100 — to be paid for by the City Council.
The sewer board approved the contract for the new system 2-0, with Board Member Dale Orem not in attendance, contingent upon the drainage board and city council approving their portions of the cost.
