GRAVETTE -- Aaron Boehmler, a civil engineer with Sand Creek Engineering, addressed city council members at their committee of the whole meeting Thursday, Nov. 9. Boehmler was representing David Marrs, the developer on a project on Birmingham Street S.E., and requested permission to install a dead-end water main, with the option to install a loop at a later date. He said Marrs had received a bid of $80,000 for installation of the 986 feet of water main, which would be about 40 percent of the project. Council members agreed to the request. This will permit Marrs to do the work at considerable savings.
