MENDOTA – The city of Mendota will build a new multi-purpose building near the site of the new water tower east on U.S. 34 after the Mendota City Council approved the proposal at its June 16 regular meeting.
According to Alderman Walt Weiland, the 7,000 square foot building will provide a home for a water pumping station as well as house seasonal city equipment. It will also be a place where all existing water treatment facilities will be tied into one efficient system where city workers will be able to monitor all of the city's water production by computer control.
The cost of the new building will be $3,988,838. McMahon & Associates is the engineering firm and Whittaker Construction & Excavating of Earlville is the general contractor. The construction process will also utilize several local businesses, including Phalen Steel Construction, H & H Builders and Sloan Electric. Construction could begin in July.
