The Mt. Pleasant Utilities meeting Tuesday began with swearing in Michelle Rosell as a member of the board of trustees. Rosell replaces Bob Stull who chose not to be appointed to another term. The trustees heard a presentation regarding the recently completed annual audit. After a discussion of eventually getting an unqualified opinion, the trustees voted to accept the audit. The annual report is available at city hall, the utilities office and usually at the public library for anyone to read.
Utilties manager Jack Hedge cock reported the utilities work in Central Park is going well. He expects an early November completion. Hedgecock and Mayor Steve Brimhall, who was in attendance, both complimented Mike Nelson Company who is also working on the park project. The city crews have said the company is outstanding to work with.
As for the Utilities work on North Grand Avenue…the street lights are on order and should arrive in late November. Once the central park project is done crews will start on the underground infrastructure for the street lights on Grand.
And the end of this month Utilities water crews will start the second phase of the well number four water treatment plant project. This is part of a five phase project keeping the city’s water infrastructure up to date.
Hedgecock is working with design engineers on some capital improvement projects including work on Webster street where several water main breaks have occurred. The design plans are also in progress for Iris Street. Hedgecock said the water distribution from the railroad south to Washington Street needs replaced.
