JOHNSONBURG – The Johnsonburg Municipal Authority held their regular meeting Tuesday night to discuss the progress of the waste water treatment plant.
According to Uni-Tec engineer Dan Guss, the plant is complete, is in operation and is producing high quality effluent biosolids.
The plant has been in full operation since May 31.
Guss said all that is left are just a few contractor punch list items.
Guss estimates the remaining amount of work to be completed will cost $3,300, but does include the work that may be involved in a settlement negotiation with McCrossin and is in addition to the estimated Uni-Tec engineering costs.
"The total project cost will stay within budget provided costs for extra engineering due to the delay are deducted from the general contractor's retainage in the final settlement," Guss said.
As of Dec. 1 the project has incurred costs of $14,424,455.20. The project budget as of April 19 is $14,319,088.
According to Guss, the project budget has only changed by about $4,000 since November's meeting.
