A agreement between the Corbin Utilities Commission and the Kentucky Department of Highways for water line replacements on KY 6 was formalized Tuesday during the CUC’s regular meeting.
The action involved disposition of the highway department’s agreements for the water line replacements on Stewart’s Creek and Lynn Camp Creek, where the state will be replacing bridges on KY 6.
The CUC will be reimbursed for their work relocating the water lines by the highway department.
They added the disposition agreement is just a formality to what was done back in June, when the board approved an agreement with Vaughn and Melton Consulting Engineers of Middlesboro in regard to the KY 6 water line relocation.
According to the Expert Glossary website, a “disposition agreement” is a general term that includes all types of agreements that contain disposition instructions. The instructions contained in a disposition agreement mandates what is to be done with certain points in their life cycle.
In his report, CUC general manager Ron Herd said the notice of award on the KY 1232 Sewer Extension project in Knox County has been executed and sent to the contractor.
The contract was awarded to Akins Excavating Company of Corbin, during a special meeting of the CUC board on July 24. Out of four bidders, Akins Excavating’s bid of $937,945 was the lowest.
After last month’s special meeting, Herd said work on the project would probably start in about two months, and should be finished within six months. The project’s cost is estimated at $1.2 million, using state and federal funds.
In other updates, Herd noted the financial analyses for the CUC’s rates from the utilities’ consultant, SAIC Energy, have been received and are being reviewed to determine the increases that are needed. Also, the contractor has submitted a final pay request of $69,983.75 for work on the 2011 Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project that was done last year. The total construction cost of the project was about $1,3 million, using CUC funds, and the project is now closed.
