(Griswold) The Griswold City Council approved a sanitary sewer rehabilitation project this week. Griswold City Administrator Chelsea Fulton says they have been planning for this for the past 5-years, and it involves relining about 14,000 feet of sewer pipe and replacing another 6,000 feet. Fulton says the estimated cost of the project is around $2.3 million.
“This is a fairly large project especially for the city the size of Griswold,” stated Fulton.
Fulton says there were two bids for the project and Bluffs Paving and Utility presented the low bid of $1,620,662.00. The city recently received a $500,000 CWBG grant, with the balance of the project funded by revenue over a 20-year period.
Fulton says Griswold residents can expect a $24.70 increase to their sewer bill.
