The Knox Board of Public Works received an update on the water project for the new Starke County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center.
Knox Mayor Rick Chambers said the project should be complete today.
“The weather has finally broken so we have gotten caught up,” explained Chambers. “The contractor has gotten in there and pretty much finished his job. The water line has been de-sanitized and pressure checked. There will be some additional work to be done. The line will have to be moved – it’s been deflected too much so we will go in and correct that problem, but should be up and operational within the next day or so.”
A pay application was presented to the board in the amount of $15,105.50 for work done by Mark Milo Enterprises.
Mayor Chambers said the project was contracted to be complete by April 14 so the project was just a week behind. Weather played a big part in the slight delay of the water line part of the jail project.
