Staff Summary
* The Midland Main Force Main is a 7,300-foot-long 10-inch diameter asbestos cement pipe originally constructed in 1973. Repeated breaks of the pipe at various locations have driven the decision to replace the entire length of the existing pipe in phases over the next two years.
* This project will include the installation of 4,300 lineal feet of new pipe, one air release valve vault including an auger under Cedar Lake Road to extend the service life of this force main system.
* The County received bids from four contractors for this work ranging from $923,250 to $1,428,850. Award of this contract is recommended to the lowest responsive responsible bidder, Joel Kennedy Construction Corp., in the amount of $898,250.
* This resolution authorizes and directs the County Purchasing Agent to execute a contract with Joel Kennedy Construction Corp., in the amount of $898,250.
