Treatment plant roof project continues

By on June 11, 2011

ELBURN—The Public Works Department received four bids in response to a request for proposals for the wastewater treatment plant roof construction. The project is funded for $235,000 by the Kane County Recovery Bond.

So far, $123,912 was spent for an automatic transfer switch at the plant and $9,910 for a six-inch pump. The balance of $101,177 is available for the roof replacement.

The flat roof on the plant costs the village more than $2,000 yearly due to damage from water on the bricks. The proposal asked for bids to construct a truss roof and to relocate the HVAC system. Alternate bids were requested for putting on a metal roof as opposed to asphalt shingles.

Public Works Director John Nevenhoven recommended the proposal made by Cole Enterprises of Elburn for $105,100. He cited the desire to use Elburn businesses for the project.

The remaining balance of the project is $3,922, and can be funded from the building fund.
