Jefferson County seeks funds for Port Hadlock wastewater system
Cydney McFarland, February 15, 2017, Peninsula Daily News
Jefferson County is struggling to find funds for the Port Hadlock wastewater system as officials aim to keep the system affordable for residents of the Irondale and Port Hadlock urban growth area.
The waste water system is expected to cost $45.2 million, according to Monte Reinders, director of the county Public Works Department.
To date, the county has confirmed only $13,394,987 of the funds needed from program grants, appropriations, existing grants and county funds, and is seeking $30 million in state and federal assistance to complete the project.
Port estimated to spend $891,000 to replace leaky warehouse roof
February 15, 2017, The Daily News
A project to repair a leaky roof at a Port of Longview warehouse may come significantly under budget, port staff told commissioners last week.
Engineers estimated that the project to replace Warehouse 10 roof will cost about $891,000 as opposed to the $1 million originally budgeted. The port plans on using its own labor for the project to save costs. Warehouse 10 is one of the largest buildings in the main Port of Longview area, housing calcined coke for British Petroleum (BP).
The leaky roof was first identified as needing to be replaced in 2014. In some areas of the roof, the structural sub-decking is so rusty that it cannot accept new screws. The reroofing project is expected to take place in the summer.
