This bond is for the second phase of the project in the amount of $3,037,000. The first phase is well under way and should be completed in about one month. The request for bonding for the third phase will be done next year. This phase is to replace the heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment as well as odor control equipment in the Blower and Administration Building and the DAF Thickener Building. All this equipment was installed in 1978. An odor study was done 20 years ago and this project grew out of a study done in 2006-07. One of the contributing factors to the odor was the removal of sludge 7 days a week. It now has been reduced to 5 days a week. Legislator L. Williams wanted to know if any survey has been done with the neighbors and suggested having a meeting with the neighbors. The Commissioner said they have held meetings in the past and the neighbors are very vocal if there is an odor problem. On the motion of Legislator Spreckman, seconded by Legislator Borgia, the motion was passed by a vote of 9-0 (Myers, Harckham, Shimsky, Borgia, Ryan, Marcotte, Smith, Spreckman, L. Williams). This had been signed out previously by the Committee on Government Operations.
