Northwestern Water and Sewer District Board Update

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, – The Northwestern Water and Sewer District’s (The District) Board of Trustees passed resolutions last week involving next year’s board appointments and new construction projects.

The District’s Board of Trustees will remain unchanged for 2018.  The Board passed resolutions reappointing three members.  Melinda Kale, will remain on the Board and was appointed by township members in The District.  Bill Verbosky, was reappointed by the municipal District members, and William Hirzel, was reappointed by the Wood County Commissioners.  All three will be officially sworn in for their three-year terms in January.

The District will now move forward on several projects approved by the Board.  Last week, the Board passed resolutions to accept bids on upcoming construction projects.  These investments will improve water infrastructure within Rossford and the Villages of McComb and Weston.

The Board also approved a resolution to seek a low-interest loan through Ohio Water Development Authority (OWDA).  This fall, all project bids have come in below the engineer’s estimate.  According to District Manager of Engineering, Tom Stalter, “Because our customers fund these projects through rate revenues, we seek low-cost loans and time competitive bids.  By making these efforts, we hope to reduce future rate increases.”

The Lime City and Buck Road waterline relocation project was awarded to Buckeye Excavating, Chagrin Falls, Ohio for a bid of $373,445.  Engineer’s estimate: $410,000.  This project will move a portion of the waterline near the intersection of Lime City and Buck Road to allow for the construction of a planned ODOT roundabout.   Work is expected to start in the spring.

The McComb water system improvement project was awarded to R.A. Bores, of Monroeville, Michigan, for a bid of $271,299.  Engineer’s estimate: $227,436.  This project will replace old waterlines in the Village, including portions of Scott, Todd, South and High Streets.   Construction is expected to begin late this winter.

The Weston Silver Street waterline loop project was awarded to Vernon Nagel, Inc., of Napoleon, Ohio, for a bid of $263,391.  Engineer’s estimate: $338,500.  This project involves the installation of a waterline along a portion of Silver Street, which will loop and improve the system.  The project will also include the installation of fire hydrants and valves.  Construction is expected to start in the spring.

The District Board of Trustees minutes are posted online.

One thought on “Northwestern Water and Sewer District Board Update”

  1. Some of the projects sound similar to ones in NB. Wonder if the water district has to struggle and grovel for funds for their projects. Wonder if it is a plus for residents in the towns with projects with the water district?
