CDBG Grant/GEFA loan and ARC Grant progress
The current status on the CDBG grant is we have named Allen-Smith Consulting as our grant administrators. The request for proposals for engineering and design on the project deadline was November 10th and we had four firms that submitted proposals. We chose LADD Enviromental as our project engineer and they have started work on the plans for the project. The project construction will be bid out in 2013.
The GEFA loan which is additional funding for the CDBG project has been applied for and we should hear something after the first of the year on it.
The ARC Grant is also in the engineering stages with LADD Enviromental handling this project also. We have received bids on the lift station for Smith Ironworks and the town employees will be installing it. Plans are being drawn for the upgrades at our wastewater treatment facility and that work will be bid out in 2013.
