Marion hires water contractor
Replacement of waterlines for a third of Marion will soon begin. Council members at Monday’s meeting accepted a $2.7 million bid from Ditch Diggers Inc. for the long discussed project.
Replacement of water pipes, many of which are 100 years old, has been discussed for years. City administrator Roger Holter said no starting date has been set.
“We are in hopes that we can issue the notice to proceed by the next city council meeting, which is Dec. 14,” Holter said.
The cost of the project was estimated last year at $3.9 million.
