The Mount Olive Town Board of Commissioners will meet in a special called session at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 11 in the conference room at town hall to approve a bid for work at the wastewater treatment plant.
The bid recommendation to replace the liner in a lagoon at the treatment plant comes from the town’s treatment plant engineer. It is a FEMA-financed project.
Town Manager Charles Brown said the actual construction portion of the bid is $473,000.
He said a total of about $650,000 has been set aside to handle all the other administrative expenses, including environmental testing, engineering, and permitting.
FEMA has authorized $645,000 for the improvement and replacement of the liner in the upset lagoon.
The lagoon was ripped to shreds during Hurricane Florence.
Brown said when the board approves acceptance of the bid there will be a pre-construction conference in late December or early January.
He said the special meeting was called in order to meet a FEMA deadline.
