$1.3M reconstruction of Hill and Fairfield streets before council

Approval of a tender award by council later this month would launch a $1.3 million reconstruction of aging infrastructure on Hill and Fairfield streets in Picton.

The project has been in the works since 2011 with a detailed engineering review of the Hill Street pumping station. Condition of its original forcemain was noted to have deteriorated and because of its size, cannot handle the maximum existing sewage flows. The existing sanitary sewer and watermain on Fairfield Street were also noted to be in poor condition.

Deteriorated sidewalk between Bay and Fairfield streets, which has been barricaded for some time to prevent public access, would also be repaired.

Four tenders for work on the sanitary and storm sewers, watermains, curbs, gutters, sidewalks and pavement, were received. At Thursday’s Committee of the Whole meeting, municipal staff are recommending council approve the lowest, from K. Mulrooney Trucking Ltd., at $1.311,443. The highest bid came in at more than $3.2 million.

Council’s approved budget allocation was set at $2,867,000.

The final decision goes to council April 23.
