Engineering firm approved
At a meeting on February 23, the Macomb Board of Trustees approved a proposal submitted by Fishbeck Engineering to provide professional engineering services and develop preliminary options for replacing the meter and pressure reading valve for the MA-01 chamber for $ 39,950. . Water and Sewerage Chief Jerry Vangelin said it would be a project to raise the counting pit from the ground and turn it into a terrestrial, more efficient measuring pit.
“If you remember, it’s a 24-meter pit and Romeo Planck, where that tragic accident happened about 26 years ago,” Vangelin said.
He also said the township had asked Fishbeck to conduct a study to assess the location of the site for the new metering pit, as well as the facility’s layout to make the new meter more efficient in terms of water pressure.
The board also approved a proposal submitted by Fishbeck to provide professional engineering services through Anderson, Eckstein and Westrick Inc. to measure the settlement sanitary sewerage system and update the sanitary hydraulic model and permit the tracking spreadsheet. It was approved at a cost of $ 185,700. Vangelin said that the city water supply system and mechanical engineering will be involved.
“This request comes to you in connection with the continuous growth of the village,” said Vangelin. “The current hydraulic model of the sewerage system is outdated in relation to the sanitary flows generated. We are in the process of creating a new master plan that will change the flows of the township, most likely to increase the flows of the township. This will help us identify and be better prepared, I must say, for additional flows. “
The zoning decision needs to be rewritten
Officials also approved Carlisle Wortman’s proposal to rewrite the settlement’s zoning decision. They awarded a $ 20,500 grant of $ 2,500 to Care House, $ 600 to Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids, $ 500 to interfaith caregivers, and $ 28,600 to the Marvin Blanc City Center for the Elderly. The council also approved the use of brick and mortar for ADA ramps and the reconstruction of the senior center.
