City council approves bid for pipe project

Staff writer

Tabor College’s proposed baseball and softball indoor practice facility will soon be able to start breaking ground, once water pipes near the Tabor water tower are moved.

City administrator Larry Paine announced at a Hillsboro City Council meeting on Tuesday that the replacement pipe they had ordered arrived the day before.

Council also received bids from three vendors for relocating water pipe near a city water tower. A bid from Mies Construction of Wichita for $70,000 was approved.

City council also voted to raise the rate of recycling from $2.27 to $2.34, which will apply to all sanitation customers.

According to Paine, the increase will terminate as soon as the city can get its sanitation and recycling truck and process set up.

In other business:

  • Yearly sales tax receipts are up slightly over the same time period as last year, from $531,668.05 to $539,382.90.
