A contract for construction of Albion’s new wastewater treatment plant was approved by the Albion City Council Tuesday night, Feb. 14.
That clears the way for construction of the new higher capacity treatment plant to begin this spring.
On a 3-1 vote, the council approved the low bid of $3,385,000 from Rutjens Construction of Tilden, which was $40,000 under the original engineer’s estimated cost.
The council also accepted a bid of $7,485 from Rutjens to extend a six-inch water main to the treatment plant site as had been discussed previously by the council.
