Resolution to Award Contract for the Water Treatment Plan UV Disinfection System Project to Weiss Construction Co., LLC ($2,582,770.00)
This memorandum and resolution requests approval to award a contract to Weiss Construction Co., LLC (Weiss) for the Water Treatment Plant (WTP) UV Disinfection System Project.
