Coronation Council

Coronation Council held a special meeting on November 4, 2013 to discuss costs regarding servicing Phase I of the light industrial subdivision south of Railway Avenue. Three phases of construction are planned.
Tenders were invited to quote for construction costs, and one tender was received from M. Pidherney’s Trucking Ltd. An engineer’s evaluation of Phase I cost of construction was $502,612. The Pidherney’s bid was $563,412.
Meeting minutes indicate that motion was passed for M. Pidherney’s Trucking Ltd. to be awarded the contract as per tender submitted.

Sewer Lagoon Capital Reserve: $132,511.45
Land Purchase/Development Reserve: $30,000
