An ordinance authorizing a contract with Blue Nile Contractors, Inc., in the amount of $478,847.00; for the installation of pipe and water main on 23rd street, from Trail Ridge to West of Hub Dr.; and authorizing future minor change orders not to exceed $47,885.00; and/or time extensions.


Council approval is recommended to award the contract for the installation of 1,884 ft. of 12" ductile iron pipe, 91 ft. of  8" ductile iron pipe and 342 ft. of 6" ductile iron water main on 23rd Street from Trail Ridge to West of Hub Drive to Blue Nile Contractors, Inc.

The Water Department is proposing to install a new 12 inch ductile iron water pipe along the south side of 23rd Street out side of the pavement.
