Foundation now in place:

County waits for delivery of transfer station office


November 21, 2019

Dean Cornelison, assistant county engineer, reported to county commissioners Monday that a concrete foundation has been poured for the new office at the county transfer station.

All that remains is for the structure to be delivered and set in place by Pacific Steel Structures of Greenacres.

“Sounds like we may get that new office by Christmas,” Cornelison said.

In the second week of October, a county bridge work crew started work on the building project, laying foundation and a septic vault. They also extended a water line for the 14 X 54-foot manufactured building, to house space for two offices, a training room, break room, restrooms and small storage space.

The estimated final project budget is $131,471.

Funding came from the county solid waste operations budget.

Training at the waste transfer site now takes place in Colfax at the Public Works building or elsewhere. The two new offices will be for David Nails, solid waste and recycling director, and Craig Sines, foreman.

Nails' office is now in the old hazardous waste facility. Sines does not currently have an office.

The building will go up next to the new solid waste building.

A full-bid process was not required.
