Eureka Council to vote to begin contract negotiations for phase of Martin Slough Interceptor Project
EUREKA- At Tuesday’s Eureka City Council meeting, Public Works staff will recommend that council members authorize contract negotiations with a company to begin the completion of a phase of the Martin Slough Interceptor Project.
The project is designed to modernize and increase efficiency for the City of Eureka’s Waste Water Treatment System. While one phase of the project has been halted, Public Works staff have selected Wahlund Construction to work on another phase. The cost of that phase will not exceed $4 million. Meanwhile, Public Works officials will continue to review the process to determine if awarding the contract is permitted, as opposed to using a competitive bid system. If awarding the contract at Tuesday’s City Council meeting is not allowed, the item will be pulled from the agenda and placed on a future council agenda.
