County briefs 1/2

The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday awarded a $54,244 contract for an 30,000 gallon water storage tank to be used by Elk Ridge homes.

The contract was awarded to Mid Atlantic Storage Systems Inc. of Washington Court House, Ohio, the only contractor who bid on the project.

The engineer's estimate for the scheduled and funded project was $60,000.

The storage tank is needed because there is insufficient water storage in that area, Water and Sewer Director Gregory Murray said.

The project, including construction, has an estimated cost of $205,000, with a state grant paying for $180,000.

The Washington County Commissioners committed $54,764 for Water and Sewer Department equipment Tuesday.

The county agreed to contract with Freemire & Associates Inc. of Harmans, Md.

A $5,264 grinder pump and 18 $2,750 grinder pumps will be purchased under the contract.
