SYRACUSE -- A Willard company has been awarded the bid to install culinary and secondary waterlines on 1000 West from 2700 South Street to Bluff Road.

The city council voted to award the waterline projects, which also include resurfacing the entire road for the impacted section, to Ormond Construction, Inc. for $1.13 million during a recent meeting. Ormond was one of 15 companies to bid the project.

The project involves the installation of a 12-inch culinary main and a 16-inch secondary main in the 3/4-mile stretch of road. A portion of the project will be funded by a grant procured through the Division of Drinking Water, according to Robert Whiteley, director of public works. City officials had budgeted $1.3 million for the project.
