Meeting: Huntingburg Board of Public WorksApril 1, 2021
The Huntingburg Board of Public Works and Safety met Thursday and:
• Approved a bid for three road projects. The company will work on Washington Street from Fourth to Sixth streets, Fifth Street from Washington to U.S. 231 and Jackson Street from Sixth to Eighth streets for $345,000. Work includes storm sewer upgrades, curb and gutter work, sidewalk work, milling and paving. The bulk of the cost will be covered by Community Crossings grant funding.
• Approved a flow study on the main sewer line that runs along Second Avenue to Van Buren, to Bretz Street, to Washington Street and then to First Street. The study would look at how much flow goes through the pipes to determine what repairs need to be done. The study will cost no more than $36,400, which includes Commonwealth Engineering conducting the study and Gripp Inc. installing and monitoring rented meters when heavy rains hit the area.
• Tabled a matter concerning a sewer line near the Eagles Club. Marvin Belcher, who manages the club, explained the work that was done and wanted the city to pay for half of the $4,100 cost. The board decided to investigate the issue.
• Approved the emergency installment of a lift station near Farbest Foods. It was installed after the former one went out, Wastewater Superintendent Brad Coomer said.
• Heard from Mayor Steve Schwinghamer that engineers are looking into how trucks delivering goods to merchants on Fourth Street can be better accommodated when making deliveries.
• Approved the request for police assistance to get Easter Bunny Stroll participants across U.S. 231 during the walk on Saturday. The stroll will be along the sidewalks on Fourth Street, starting at 10 a.m. at Market Street Park.
• Approved A Kid’s Place’s request to host its second annual Amazing Race scavenger hunt on Saturday, April 24; the event will start and end at Huntingburg City Park.
