YATES BUILDING

CWL is developing plans for an exterior renovation of the Yates building located at 315/317 East Street. The plans should be completed in June with bidding of the project following immediately. This renovation will mostly focus on the front (east) face of the building and not be nearly as extensive as the Post Office building renovation. This renovation will greatly enhance the appearance of the building and increase our potential for finding a tenant to lease the building. Our goal is to complete the renovation by late this year.

FARVILLE ELECTRIC SUBSTATION

Construction of the Farville substation began in the spring of 2013. The majority of the construction and equipment installation is complete. Some wire testing and communication/control wiring is still required. Station completion date remains scheduled for summer of 2014.

69kV LINE HERGETT TO FARVILLE

CWL is in the process of designing for construction a 69kV transmission line from our Hergett substation to our Farville substation, currently under construction. CWL plans on using steel poles for the line and is in the process of pole design and ordering materials. CWL will utilize a bid process as part of the evaluation of utilizing the CWL workforce versus contract labor. CWL plans to bid the project in September. Completion date is scheduled for summer of 2014.

NORTHEAST SEWER INTERCEPTOR

Phase I of the project is now complete. This results in approximately 8,000’ of 42” gravity sewer line extending from the East Side Wastewater Treatment Plant northward to Krueger Drive. The contract for Phase II has been awarded to Rosetta Construction from Springfield, Missouri, who was also the contractor for Phase I. Rosetta’s bid was $1,835,425, which was well below our consulting engineer’s estimate of $2.3 million. Phase II consists of approximately 13,000’ of 36” gravity sewer from Krueger Drive to the Ellis Lane Lift Station just south of Prospect Road. Rosetta has completed the installation of the four bore casings for Phase II and approximately one mile of the gravity sewer. The project should be completed late this year. This project will allow for decades of growth in Northeast and East Jonesboro.

  SENATH, MO (KAIT) – The City of Senath has received a grant to install two new tornado sirens.Senath Mayor Joe Lane said the siren Senath has had for the past eight years is working adequately, but he wants to install additional sirens so residents can better hear the warnings."The project is $56,000 and some odd dollars. We got a 75 percent grant, which is $42,000. The city will have to pay $14,000, and if we can save one life $14,000 is a small number," he said.Senath resident Eric Nino, wh...
