Fresh Paint Planned for North Water Tower

Sioux Center’s north water tower will likely get a fresh coat of new paint this year.

This past week, the Sioux Center City Council held a public hearing on bids for the project, which includes painting the exterior and spot painting the interior as needed.

“The new paint will match the current paint, white with black letters,” said Utility Engineer Matt Van Schouwen. “It will be 30-year coating on the exterior.”

Additional work will include repairing part of the foundation, upgrading the roof vent system, and adding a mixer to keep the water fresh and prevent freezing within the tank during the winter.

Out of eight bids for this project, the lowest is from Utility Service Co., of Perry, Ga., which has a Kansas City office. Their bid was $267,400, which came in nearly $100,000 below the engineer’s estimate.

 The council will vote on awarding the bid at the March 29 council meeting, which will be at noon at the City Office.
