Fairgrounds bike path project delayed


• The board approved a change order at the Twelfth Street Lift Station in the upgrade of the SCADA system controls of five key lift stations within the collection system. SCADA, or Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition, is the name of the automated control system used by the Goshen water and wastewater treatment facilities staffers in their daily operations, Sailor said. The facility does not have adequate fusing to provide overload protection for the new equipment and a new breaker panel is required. The cost increase is $1,590 and raises the total project cost to $1,548,960. Change orders have increased the project cost by 16.66 percent.

• The board approved the agreement for sale and purchase of real estate at 602 E. Kercher Road. Goshen officials are planning to construct a stormwater facility on the north side of Kercher Road and realign Industrial Park Drive with Pine Manor Avenue. The Redevelopment Commission has agreed to provide the funding for the acquisition of the real estate along Kercher Road needed for these projects.
