Warner Robins will close bidding Thursday morning for a Bay Gall Creek project to restore a 25-foot vegetative buffer and remove sediment from the state’s waters, requirements set forth after a state investigation into work done at the creek.
The Georgia Environmental Protection Division found last year the city violated permitting requirements while dredging the creek. A consent order laid out a number of city duties to rectify the problems, including restoration of the buffer.
City Engineer Walter Gray said he would like the project to begin before the end of the month and be completed in mid-February. The City Council will review Gray’s contractor selection at Thursday’s pre-council meeting and vote on its approval at Monday’s regular council meeting.
The three possible bidders at Monday’s meeting were Cochran-based Paulk Landscaping, Warner Robins-based Unique Landscaping and Fort Valley-based Cedargreen Landscaping, Gray said.
