Carollo Engineers will oversee a multimillion-dollar wastewater treatment plant upgrade at a cost not to exceed $1.8 million, plus $183,000 contingency, if the contract is approved at tonight’s regular Galt City Council meeting.

If approved, the Walnut Creek-based engineering firm will handle construction management of state-mandated upgrades required to be completed by Sept. 2015. The upgrades are related to new pollutant discharge rules, according to Public Works Director Steven Winkler.

Project bids are expected to be advertised in April.

Carollo, which will oversee that contractor, was chosen from four applications that were reviewed by a panel of city staff, according to Winkler.

In other action tonight, council members are expected to:

  • Approve changes to the Police Officers’ Association contract relating to standby time for detectives.
  • Recognize Mari Martinez and Mike Vontoure for receiving the Character Coalition’s Caring and Compassion Award.
  • Receive an update on the city’s Capital Improvement Program from Winkler.
  • Hear a presentation on the Parks and Recreation Commission’s annual report.
  • Discuss in closed session City Attorney Steven Rudolph’s performance evaluation.

The Galt City Council meets at 7 p.m. in the city council chambers at City Hall, 380 Civic Drive, Galt.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
