NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
The Town of Pinedale, Wyoming, will conduct a public meeting at 5:00 PM, local time, on June 12, 2023, in the Lovatt Room of the Sublette County Library, 155 S Tyler Ave, Pinedale, WY. The purpose of the meeting is to allow citizens to review and comment on the Pinedale Shallow Main Waterline Replacement project, which consists of removal of existing water mains and services beneath Quartz Avenue, Shanley Avenue, and Jade Street and replacement with approximately 2800 linear feet of six and eight-inch diameter pipe intended to reduce the risk of freezing and conserve water currently used for winter bleeding. This area of Town has common freezing issues resulting in: 1) costly repairs passed on to the residents, and 2) a waste of Town resources. Work includes the completion of necessary street repairs due to the location of the underground infrastructure and is anticipated to be constructed in 2024.
At the meeting, the Town of Pinedale will present the preliminary design of the proposed project and will discuss the estimated cost of the improvements and the plan for funding the improvements. A preliminary plan of improvements, cost estimates, and the funding plan can also be obtained for review by contacting the office of Nelson Engineering, 430 S Cache St, Jackson, WY. Contact Matt Bowers at (307) 733-2087, or email@example.com.
Based on current cost estimates, the Town of Pinedale plans to borrow $1,258,000 from the Wyoming Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund administered by the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments. Increased user fees and reserves from the water enterprise fund will repay the loan. The average rate increase is estimated to be $2.10/month per user to repay the loan. Loan terms will be, at maximum, 2.5% interest rate and 20 years.
Written comments are also welcome. Send written comments to Nelson Engineering, Attn: Suzanne Lagerman, P.O. Box 1599, Jackson, WY 83001, or firstname.lastname@example.org by 2:00 P.M. local time on June 12, 2023.
