BLAINE – The city of Blaine has received a bid from a Bean Station contractor to expand the sewer system to the Eastland Place Apartments.

The bid of $351,769 was submitted by Horizon Underground LLC. Mayor Marvin Braden said it was the only bid for the project. He said the Board of Mayor and Aldermen will be asked to award the contract at its meeting Monday, September 20.

“This is a much-needed sewer expansion for the Eastland Place Apartments for the failing system they have. This will also give us more capacity for much needed development in the Food City area,” Braden said.

He said he expects construction to begin soon after the contract is awarded.
