Resolution to Award Construction Contract for the Barton Pump Station Valve Improvement Project to Weiss Construction Co., LLC ($4,656,400.00) (ITB No. 4703)
Memorandum
This memorandum and resolution requests approval to award a construction contract to Weiss Construction Co. LLC for the Barton Pump Station Valve Improvement Project ($4,656,400.00) (ITB No. 4703).

The City submitted a Project Plan to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) for a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan to finance the Barton Pump Station Valve Improvement Project. The Project Plan was reviewed and scored by EGLE, ranking within the fundable range of the final Project Priority List (PPL) for federal and state-match funding. The Barton Pump Station Valve Improvements Project is eligible to receive DWSRF funding and is eligible for a Drinking Water Infrastructure (DWI) Grant estimated to be $1,380,000.00.
