UNION — Sewer lines along four streets in the City of Union will not only be cleaned but also inspected via television under a contract awarded by Union City Council earlier this week.
In his report to council Tuesday evening, City of Union Utility Director Joe Nichols stated that two bids were received on a sewer system improvement project. Nichols said that the project involves the “cleaning and TV inspection of approximately 5,329 linear fee of sanitary gravity sewer and 24 sanitary sewer manholes.” He said that the city had received the following bids by the following companies on the project:
• Bio-Nomic Services, Inc. — $20,957.95
• Southeast Pipe Survey, Inc. — $23,506.85
Nichols recommended council award the bid to Bio-Nomic Services in the bid amount of $20,957.95. He stated that the utility department had worked with the company before on sewer systems cleaning and inspection projects. Based on their previous work, Nichols said he feels Bio-Nomic Services “is capable of completing the work in good order.”
The project will involve the cleaning and TV inspection of sewer lines serving Evant Street, Malone Avenue, West Main Street, and Bailey Street. Nichols said the cleaning and inspection of the sewer lines is part of the city’s efforts to secure grants for a sewer upgrade project.
Council voted unanimously to award the bid to Bio-Nomic Services.
The project will be paid for out of the City of Union Utility Fund.
