The City of Baker opened sealed contractor bids Sept. 12, 2012, relating to three different projects all connected to the TransCanada Man Camp. According to recommendations made by Jon Brosz at the City Council meeting of Sept. 5, 2012, the City needs to be able to award bids within one week of receiving them.
The quick turn around time is necessary to ensure that all permits and other paperwork are in order. One of the three jobs is scheduled to start in early October and conclude in early November.
The work to be done will include the extension of a water main to the TransCanada Man Camp, construction of a new water storage tank, and construction of a water well.
The majority of the cost of each of the three projects is anticipated to be underwritten by TransCanada. City attorney Darcy Pankratz is working with TransCanada’s attorneys to finalize the agreement between the two parties to expedite the process.
