Work has begun on upgrades at the wastewater treatment plant in Limoges.
In April, La Nation Council awarded the construction tender for the project to Fuller Construction. It was the lowest of the three bids the municipality received for the project, but it still exceeded the budgeted amount.
According to a Water and Wastewater Department report, the budgeted cost for the project was $8.1 million but the Fuller bid was for $10,064,000. The treasurer’s department determined it was still financially sustainable for the work to go ahead but that further considerations would be needed to cover the additional costs. The treasurer will be reviewing the project and presenting options to council for financing.https://thereview.ca/2019/07/15/10-million-wastewater-improvements-underway-in-limoges/
