The Saukville Village Board on Feb. 6 approved plans for repainting and upgrading a water tower, a project that will cost $101,300.

“We had bids range from $122,000 to $291,000,” said Dale Kropidlowski, the village’s water utility superintendent, noting he was able to reduce the lowest bid by passing on the installation of a mud valve and exterior-roof handrail.

The 500,000-gallon tower is on North Dekora Woods Boulevard. The project will be paid for through a combination of $50,000 from the village’s 2017 budget and money leftover from last year’s street project.

“We’re sitting in a very positive position, and the numbers came in really good,” Village Administrator Dawn Wagner said.

“We’re happy to move forward with the project because everything came together.”

Lane Tank of Menomonie will complete the project. Dixon Engineering will provide inspection and engineering services.

According to the project’s bid documents, work is expected to start in the fall or spring of 2018.
