Sewage Collection System Contract Signed

(Friday, August 15, 2003)-- A contract between Halifax Regional Municipality and Dexter Construction to design and build the sewage collection system for the Harbour Solutions Project was officially signed today.

Regional Council's Harbour Solutions Advisory Committee approved the final agreement earlier this week. The agreement was signed this afternoon by Mayor Peter Kelly, on behalf of Regional Council, and Kurt Jacobs and Hugh Smith, on behalf of Dexter Construction and Municipal Enterprises.

The final contract price will be no more than $115.7 million, plus taxes and inflation. Construction is expected to start in late Summer or early Fall.

The Harbour Solutions Committee has met twice during the past few weeks to review progress in talks with Dexter. It was authorized by Regional Council last month to review, and eventually approve, the draft agreement between HRM and Dexter.

HRM staff is expected to make recommendations to Regional Council in September regarding the sewage treatment plants and future phases of the project.
