Monterey To Award Bids For Flooding Fix

Monterey aldermen will consider awarding bids Monday for a project to fix the town’s flooding problem.

Mayor Bill Wiggins said the engineering plan for the project should make a difference.

“We think so. With the dimensions of the pipe, there will be no excessive amount of water, other than what’s going through there now,” Wiggins said. “Of course, the board is still looking for phase 2 and phase 3, which is on the other side of the tracks to Industrial Drive and on under the interstate to Pettys Dam.”

Phase one of the project calls for placing new pipes and culverts from the police department property line to under the railroad tracks.

Elk Mountain Construction submitted the low bid for $124,403.

Aldermen meet at 7 p.m. Monday to award the bids.
