Natural Gas Line Replacement

The Laurens Commission of Public Works approved a $2 million bid for completing Phase IV of the Commission’s steel gas line replacement project. The CPW is seeking to replace older gas lines. The Commissioners Monday evening approved a resolution to accept a bid from Electricom, Inc. to complete Phase IV for $1,976,786.40.

In a related resolution, the CPW authorized the issuance of a combined utility system revenue bond, not to exceed $3 million. The resolution gives the commission latitude on how to use any leftover funds, once the gas line replacement project is complete.
