Culver Road project nearly ready for bid
The Falkville Town Council discussed the progress of the Culver Road project at a work session Tues., Jan. 27.
Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood engineer Russ Roberts assured them via a letter that the culvert plans are drawn up and the project should go to bid soon.
They are proceeding with plans to make the culvert larger to redirect more water to prevent flooding and replace the damaged existing culvert. The new culvert will accommodate future plans to widen Culver Road.
The council had expected this project to go to bid back in October, but plan changes and FEMA certifications slowed the process. The council has already allocated a grant to help fund the project.
Once Culver Road progress is being made, they can begin planning to improve Buster Road.
The council also discussed a bad check policy that would prevent utility payees from writing a check for a year if they had two or more bad checks on their account. They will also donate $750 to the Falkville High School golf team and have started work on the roof of a town shop under a contract with Josh Brown of Valley Roofing. Mayor Bob Ramey will also accept bids to fix the roof and upstairs storage room of the Falkville Library that has water damage.
