Charles Juneau, president of Juneau Associates, Inc. spoke at the meeting and said the project would eliminate four existing pump stations, including the one at Meridian Road, with a proposal for a new pump station.

He said the new pump station is also necessary for a developer planning a project off of Glen Carbon Road north of 270, who has agreed to contribute $100,000 toward the sewer project.

“This is a very necessary project, eliminating four existing [pump stations] and one new pump station,” Juneau said. “It’s a very large pump station that will be sewered by gravity - that entire area of Summerset and the area of Meridian Oaks subdivision.”

The approved bid, totaling $2,087,824.50, was submitted by Haier Plumbing and Heating. This was the lowest of two total bids that were submitted, the other being from Kamadulski Excavating & Grading in the amount of $2,612,371.99.

Members of the Village Board then voted unanimously to approve the bid for the project. An approximate timeline for the project was not yet available.
