Flood prone 12th Street project needs more funding

According to city administrators the existing storm pipeline is vastly undersized and serves 253 acres of the middle and lower bench areas of the City of Cody. This includes portions of Main Street, the High School and numerous subdivisions. The total requested amount requested is $25,000 bringing the total project amount to $300,000. These additional funds will be sought through state grants. The request for additional grant funding needs approval from Park County, Powell and Meeteetse before it goes to the state board. This application is to increase funding for the 12th Street Storm Drainage Project. Due to the higher than anticipated bids which were received for this project the City of Cody is seeking additional funding of $25,000 for a total amount of $300,000. These funds will be used for design, bid, bid administration and construction of approximately 505 linear feet of 36" and 42" Steel HOPE storm drainage piping, the adjustment to numerous utilities (sewer, gas and telephone) and partial sidewalk reconstruction where impacted by the installation of storm water piping, new sections of curb and gutter and reconstruction of the road. #reboot #news
