Bids to be let soon on newest sewerage project

The town of Brantley is getting ready to take the next steps to use funding secured through Community Development Block Grants and planning grants.

The town was awarded $350,000 to rehabilitate and replace sewer line and other components within the sewer system, and was awarded $32,000 for a planning grant to help develop a land-use plan, subdivision regulations and ordinances.

The awards for these funds were announced by Gov. Kay Ivey’s office the week of Thanksgiving.

Town Administrator Phillip Moseley said at Tuesday night’s council meeting that the town would need to adopt a resolution at its Feb. 9 meeting to appoint a planning committee for the land-use grant.

Additionally, the town has signed an agreement with the South Central Alabama Development Commission to administer the CDBG grant.

The grant will take care of sewerage system improvements on Pecan Circle, James Street and a portion of Mill Street in the same area.

Mayor Bernie Sullivan said they will open bids soon on the CDBG project.

Moseley said they hope to begin the project in June or July.
