At its November Ordinary Meeting, Council progressed three major Council projects by awarding of tenders.
Firstly, Council accepted the tender provided by Boots Civil for a contracted price of $428,535.32 (inclusive of GST) for the construction of a new landfill trench at the Leeton Landfill & Recycling Centre. The new trench will serve as a crucial component of waste management for the residents of Leeton Shire and guarantee the safe and proper disposal of waste.
Secondly, Council awarded the tender for the delivery of the electrical upgrade at the Leeton Sewer Treatment Plant to I2R for a contracted price of $413,517.10 (inclusive of GST). The purpose of this upgrade is to rectify non-compliant electrical installations and remediate safety concerns identified on-site. Additionally, the project will see the installation of Power Factor Correction units and Active Harmonic filtration assisting with Council’s energy bills on the site.
Lastly, Council rejected all tenders received for the Vance Estate Stage 3 Expansion project on the basis of non-conformance and price. Council instead resolved to enter into direct negotiations with one or more suppliers – including but not limited to Boots Civil – for the provision of the construction of the Vance Industrial Estate Stage 3 Expansion up to the balance of the available voted budget less the cost for contingency, project management, agents and development application fees.
