The Fort Dodge City Council will hold a rare Tuesday evening meeting this week to address some utility projects needed for the expansion of the North Central Ag Industrial Park.
The council will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Municipal Building, 819 First Ave. S.
The elected officials will consider awarding a contract for removing sludge, the solid waste left over from the sewage treatment process, from lagoons at the wastewater treatment plant, 1801 Ave. B. The sludge must be removed from lagoons before renovations can be made to the plant so it can receive waste from the Ag Industrial Park.
DRT Bio-Solids, of Oklahoma City, Okla., submitted the apparent low bid of $517,000.
Councilmembers will also consider awarding a contract for extending water and sanitary sewer lines to the CJ Bio America plant under construction in the Ag Industrial Park. Geislinger & Sons, of Watkins, Minn., submitted the apparent low bid of about $3 million.
Those water and sewer lines will be paid for by CJ Bio America and the Webster County government. During Tuesday's meeting, the council is scheduled to act on an agreement outlining that payment arrangement.
