1. Discussion of Well #8, Well # 9 and Water Tower
Rempe-Sharpe provided a proposal for services in constructing Well 8, Well 9 and a 750,000 gallon water tower. The total estimated construction cost would be $6,150,000.
The Village has been forced to put Well 3 in emergency status due to the combined radium tests coming back higher than EPA standards.
Dan Watson of Rempe-Sharpe said that they would need authorization from the Village to begin construction on the tower to be completed by 2018.
Village Administrator Steve Bosco noted that all of the work does not need to be done at once and can be done in stages. The agreement will be fine-tuned and brought back to the Village Board on the next agenda.
2. Discussion of a Proposal from Teska Associates for the Redesign of Riverfront Park
Staff recently met with NOARDA to discuss ideas for enhancing the North Aurora Riverfront Park. Staff also met with a landscape architect from Teska Associates. A proposal for the landscape plan was submitted by Teska which would not exceed $14,500. This item will be brought back to the Board meeting on September 19th for further discussion.
