Oldest town gets help repairing winter damage
Nevada’s first town will benefit from Federal Emergency Management Administration money to repair damage done in last winter’s flooding.
Town Manager Phil Ritger presented bids from Mountain West Construction to do all the work for $15,946.
The town approached four contractors, of which three responded with bids.
Work sites include:
Cleaning out ditches and flow lines on 138 feet of Nixon Street between Genoa Street and Cord Alley
Cleaning ditches and flow lines along the entire length of Carson Street.
Clean out and re-establish ditches along 470 feet of Genoa Street north of First Street
Clean out and re-establish ditches along the entire length of First and Fifth streets.
The work also includes repairing the surface aggregate on all five streets, along with Junction Alley, Genoa Street and Nixon Street.
The work also includes upgrading the culvert at Nixon and Genoa streets from 18 inches in diameter to 24 inches and adding a 24-inch culvert at Carson and Genoa streets.
FEMA estimates the town will require 700 cubic yards of decomposed granite surface aggregate to cover the damaged roads to 4 inches deep.
Genoa Town Board members accepted the bid at their Wednesday meeting.
