Public Hearing on New Well Plans

May 13 is the date set for a public hearing on  for three bid packages making up the Cedar Lane well and water distribution project.  The Mount Pleasant Municipal Utilities Board will hold the hearing during it’s 1 pm meeting that day. The project is broken up into three parts to keep cost down.  The entire cost of this phase of this project to create a new well for the city is estimated at about 3 million dollars.  A third of that is coming from an Economic Development Administration grant. At a meeting Tuesday the Utilities Board of Trustees reviewed the bid packages covering well drilling, well equipping and the raw water main. The board passed resolutions giving tentative approval to the proposed  plans, specs, form of contract and estimated cost for each bid package.
