Elburn to approve contract for water tower painting, other maintenance

By on February 13, 2014

ELBURN—The Elburn Village Board on Monday discussed a project for painting and other maintenance and improvements to the Prairie Valley North elevated water storage tank scheduled this summer.

Public Works Superintendent John Nevenhoven said that although the project will take place in the next fiscal year, in order to schedule the project for the summer timeframe, the engineering and bidding process must take place now.

“A lot of things will be done in addition to painting,” Nevenhoven said. “It won’t only be pretty on the outside, but also pretty on the inside, where it really counts.”

The $238,920 project includes exterior and interior painting, corrosion protection, new railings, electrical improvements and other necessary updates. Engineering Enterprises, Inc. will provide engineering services for the project at a cost of $50,000.

“We’re due on this,” Village President Dave Anderson said.

The project agreement will be on the Village Board’s agenda on Monday, Feb. 17.
