After a year of inquiry and waiting, specifications to advertise for renovations to La Cygne’s water treatment plant were released last week by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
That was among the updates La Cygne’s City Council heard at their regular meeting last Wednesday, Sept. 5, concerning current water, past sidewalk and future highway-widening projects.
Brett Waggoner of BG Consultants, Inc., design engineer and manager of the current $5.1 million water distribution system improvement project, said that the schedule for water treatment plant upgrades – “now set in stone” – will include a pre-bid conference Sept. 20, bid opening on Oct. 4, bid award at the council’s regular Oct. 17 meeting and a pre-construction conference Nov. 30.
