The Shelbina City Council approved a bid for the city’s line replacement project, received an update on the SCADA system and approved a motion to continue a service contract with Hach during Tuesday night’s regular meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Pole Replacement Bids
   The City received five bids for the pole replacement project that will take place in Shelbina. Shelbina City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer said they decided to scratch one of the five projects to keep within budget. They scratched the Missouri Street project.
   The cost of Line Brothers to do the four projects will be $87,500. A motion was approved to go with that bid. Klusmeyer said the City would try to take care of the Missouri Street project itself in-house.
   He noted that they will be replacing 45 poles, not counting the Missouri Street project.
   The time-line for the project is to have it off the books before the next fiscal year that begins July 1. He said he is guessing a March-April-May time-line.
   Water Plant
   SCADA System
   Klusmeyer reported that Mark Twain is wanting to drop the city from carrying its system for monitoring the water towers. Klusmeyer wants to go back to a low frequency radio system that will be run in-house.
   The cost of the total install for the new system would be around $10,000, which includes, equipment, labor and startup for the new system.
   This system controls the water pumps and monitors the tower levels and alarms, Klusmeyer explained to the council. A motion was approved by the council to proceed with this. Klusmeyer will be working with Blakely & Associates.
