Tender moments prevail for county council

Several new trucks and graders are expected to soon make their way into the County of Stettler public works yard.

Several new trucks and graders are expected to soon make their way into the County of Stettler public works yard.

At its monthly meeting in February, county council awarded tenders based on staff recommendations for:

— Two 2013 Caterpillar graders from Finning of Red Deer for a total cost of $996,424, plus the federal goods and services tax.

— A 2014 Kenworth truck and chassis from Greatwest Kenworth in Red Deer for a cost of $140,478.25, plus GST.

— A 2013 Dodge Ram plow truck from Stettler Dodge for $50,739, plus GST.

— A 2013 Chevrolet Silverado four-wheel-drive crew-cab half-ton pickup truck from Stettler Motors for a cost of $37,270.21, plus GST.

— A 2013 Dodge Ram crew-cab half-ton pickup truck from Stettler Dodge for a cost of $32,119, plus GST.

Gravel tenders awarded

Tenders to supply and haul gravel for 2013 to 2017 were awarded to James Marshall Trucking Ltd. of Erskine in the amount of $5,329,537.50.

Water connections requested

A request by Willow Glen Estates Water Co-op to connect to the county’s rural water system will be further considered as a new phase of the project.

“The request in my view would represent a new distribution system phase,” said chief administrative officer Tim Fox.

Under the plan, Byemoor and Endiang would be the first phase, followed by Stettler East, Botha and Gadsby and the third phase as Willow Glen off the Shirley McClellan Regional Water Services Commission.

“We’ve had lots of requests also from Big Valley and Donalda,” Fox said.

To accommodate those requests, he suggested funding could be accessed from the Municipal Sustainability Initiative.
