Engineering services contract negotiations ordered

Negotiations for an engineering services contract with Corollo Engineers, Inc. and its team of specialists was ordered by the Franklin County Water District Board of Directors in their December meeting.

The contract will outline the scope of services to be done in its preliminary engineering report to determine options for solving the continuing issues with sluffing of earthen materials from the back side of the dam for Lake Cypress Springs.  The report, if started soon, should be completed in four months with recommendations presented to the board in August 2019.  For the rest of this story, see the December 27 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
