March 8, 2017, Monroe, NC – The Union County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) on Monday took action on several items.
Waxhaw Downtown Sewer Replacement
The BOCC authorized the award of a construction contract to Harvest Environmental Services, Inc. in the amount of $374,643.50 for sewer replacement in downtown Waxhaw. The project is part of Union County Public Works Wastewater Rehabilitation and Replacement Program.
Due to overall pipe condition, serviceability and alignment modifications necessary to comply with current regulatory requirements, sewers in downtown Waxhaw were targeted for replacement. This project includes service to several businesses on W. South Main Street between S. Providence Street and S. Church Street and an extension of sewer along King Street.
Increased Federal and State Funding for Public Health
The BOCC approved a budget amendment to appropriate Federal and State grant funding to Public Health programs.
The State has increased grant funding for Union County Public Health in the amount of $86,596. This funding will be used by several Public Health programs – Immunization Action, Child Health, Family Planning, Bioterrorism, Health Promotions, Maternal Health, and Communicable Diseases.
Funds Approved for New Town Elementary Roof Project
The BOCC authorized the Board of Education to transfer $95,360 of FY 2016 Roofing Funds from completed roofing projects to the New Town Elementary roofing project. The bid to replace the roof at New Town Elementary came in $95,360 over the approved budget. In the County’s FY 2016 Capital budget, the BOCC appropriated roofing money by specific roofing project. To be able to replace the roof at New Town Elementary, the Board of Education requested that the BOCC authorize the reallocation of money saved from other roofing projects that have been completed.
Dr. Jeff Broadway Reappointed to Human Services Board
The BOCC reappointed Dr. Jeff Broadway as the veterinarian representative on the Consolidated Human Services Board. Dr. Broadway’s term expired in November 2016. The Consolidated Human Services Board voted unanimously on Feb. 13 to recommend Dr. Broadway’s reappointment to the Board.
