This resolution will authorize the professional engineering services for the design, bid and construction of Phase IV sanitary and storm sewer improvements. Since MSA prepared the overall plan provided engineering services for Phase I, Phase II and Phase III improvements, it’s logical that they would be the most qualified to do the engineering work for the next and final phase, Phase IV. MSA was the only proposal.
