16 I The Lovell Chronicle I December 24, 2009 www.LovellChronicle.com Council mulls water/sewer project planning BY DAVID PECK The Town of Lovell is awaiting word from the State Loan and Investment Board before sending a letter to a major funding agency on the town's ongoing water and sewer infrastructure project about how the town intends to proceed with the next phase of the project. Big Horn County mayors earlier agreed to return $267,000 in county consensus money from lower-than-expected bids on the Southwest/Transmission Line phase of the project to the Town of Lovell for the up- coming South phase, but that reallocation must be approved by the SLIB, which will next meet in early February. Town Administrator Bart Grant has been in communication with the SLIB staff and is hoping that the town can be written a letter stating that the money would be on the consent list at the February meeting. During a special noon council meeting Tuesday it was explained that, if the SLIB letter is received, the town could include the returned county consen- sus funding in its letter outlining the fi- nancing for the South phase of the project to the USDA Rural Utilities Service. If the SLIB letter is not received, the town could either send the RUS letter including the $267,000 or an alternate letter leaving out the amount. If the letter including the $267,000 is sent to RUS but for some reason the SLIB does not approve the funding, the town would be obligated to cover a portion of the design costs for the South project. If the $267,000 is approved, the grant money would cover the design costs. Generally, the $267,000 would pay for two additional blocks of water and sewer work in the southeast part of town, and the council discussed some of the engineering and design issues that the project will face. Grant said he is concerned about the por- tion of the Garfield hill that slipped two years ago. Frank Page of DOWL/HKM Engineer- ing said it would probably cost more to work around existing services on the hill than to build new ones, and when Grant asked about stabilizing the new lines, Page said a geo-technical investigation would be required as part of the engineering and de- sign. The Garfield water line "pulls apart" about every other year, Grant said. Getting back to the two RUS letters, Grant said he has been told the return of the $267,000 will be on the consent list, along with some other projects from around the state, and he's hoping the SLIB staff could write a letter stating that likelihood. "I don't see any problem with it," he said. The council eventually voted to send a letter to RUS including the $267,000 in county consensus money as part of the project planning if the town receives a con- firmation from SLIB by Jan. 4. If not, the town would send a nearly identical letter without the $267,000 in the stated fund- ing. Work on the South project could begin as early as next fall, Page said. INVASIVE SPECIES In other business Tuesday, the council considered a request from Friends of Big- horn Lake Board President Bob Croft to help publicize measures that need to be taken to prevent the spread of aquatic in- vasive species - namely zebra mussels and quagga mussels. Croft appeared before the council at the Dec. 8 meeting and asked the town to help publicize the serious nature of the fast- spreading mussels, speaking as a mem- ber of a State aquatic invasive species task force. He mentioned funding a newspaper advertisement of some sort, perhaps pay- ing for a brochure about the problem to be inserted in the newspaper. Placing the brochure in TCT WEST bills was also mentioned as a possibility. Councilwoman Jodi Lindsay noted that, due to the low cost of insert rates, she would like to see the brochure run twice, and both Mayor Bruce Morrison and Coun- cilman Scott Allred said the brochure could be run in the full circulation of the Lovell Chronicle, rather than just the local distri- bution. As for timing, Grant said he believed Croft would like to see the brochure insert- ed before the Wyoming Legislature meets in February, perhaps in the second or third week of January. Councilman Bruce Wol- sey said it could perhaps be inserted again in April just before the lake opens to boat- ing as a fresh reminder to boaters. The council voted to pay for up to two insertions in the full run of the newspaper, if sufficient brochures can be obtained. The council went into a brief closed ses- sion to discuss litigation prior to adjourn- ingjust before 1 p.m. For Rent Real Estate Services SUPER CLASSIFIEDS GET SUPER RESULTSI Place your ad in the Super Classifieds and it will be published in The Lovell Chronicle, Basin Republican-Rustler, Greybull Standard and Powell Tribune, all for one price!
