CVRD Receives Six Bids for Curling Centre Project in Courtenay
The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) has received six bids for General Contractor to provide all necessary labour, equipment, materials and tools for the renovation of the Comox Valley Curling Centre. The bids ranged from $1,480,700 to $1,833,548; Kinetic Construction Ltd. was the low bidder at $1,480,700. The prices listed represent unverified values and the final award of the Contract is subject to Comox Valley Regional District board approval.
Six Bids Received for Oyster River Water Treatment Facility Upgrades
The CVRD received six bids for the Oyster River Water treatment facility ultra violet upgrades, ranging in value from $296,723 to $497,963. The work includes the supply of materials, labour, and equipment to retrofit the existing Oyster River Water treatment facility (Black Creek) and install new UV disinfection equipment. Award of the contract is subject to sufficient budget funds being available for the project and approval of the CVRD board.
South Sewer Project Submits Grant Application for Kilmarnock Drive Area
In November of 2014, the CVRD added the Kilmarnock Drive area in Union Bay to Phase 1 of the South Sewer Project (SSP). The CVRD has approved submission of a grant application for the south sewer project Kilmarnock collection system under the Building Canada Small Communities Fund. This area was not included in the initial 2011 proposed project phasing, which resulted in a $15 million general strategic priorities fund gas tax grant in March of 2013. As a result, there is the opportunity to apply for additional funding. The estimated cost of the project is $5.2 million, and the application will seek two-thirds senior government funding towards the project. A decision on the application from Building Canada is expected by the Fall of 2015.
