AuSABLE TWP. – The AuSable Township Board of Trustees discussed three water main projects scheduled for 2018. 

Earlier this year, when the capital improvement plan was approved, total estimated cost for Johnson and  MacKenzie roads and Lester Street water mains was $352,000.

Since that time, cost projections from Fleis & Vandenbrink  Engineering (F&V) show large cost increases due to supply, engineering, designing and inclusion of contingency costs, said Superintendent Leisa Sutton.

The Johnson Road project (approximately 3,700 linear feet) was initially projected to cost $251,000. The revised estimate is $397,719.
