Town submits app for stimulus funds

The Town of Pulaski has officially submitted its first application for federal stimulus funds.
The application, through the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) would seek nearly $1.8 million for a sanitary sewer rehabilitation project in the Southeast section of town.
According to the application, the first phase of the project would rehabilitate 3,000 feet of 18-inch and 3,000 feet of 24-inch concrete sanitary sewer main pipe in order to reduce the amount of infiltration entering the treatment system.
Phase II would rehabilitate 6,000 feet of 30-inch pipe.
Phase I is estimated to cost $737,000 to complete and Phase II, just over $1 million.
A memorandum from the DEQ Water Division’s Office of Construction Assistance indicates the State Water Control Board anticipates having about $78 million in stimulus funds to make available to local governments for projects that involve improvements to publicly owned wastewater collection and treatment facilities.
The deadline for submitting applications for the funds is Monday, March 9.
The sewer project is one of several projects the town hopes to be able to fund with stimulus money. Other’s proposed include:
• Construct a new visitor’s clubhouse, umpires locker room, and concession stand at Calfee Park and improve Fifth Street parking.
• Construct a picnic shelter at the Gatewood Campground.
• Construct a picnic shelter at Macgill Park.
• Remove deteriorated concrete on Gatewood Dam and replace as recommended. Install remote monitoring station for flood control/evaluation. Stabilize the toe area of the dam where erosion has occurred.
• Replace roof on the Town of Pulaski’s water treatment plant at 911 Randolph Ave.
• Paint the interior and exterior, and provide maintenance for up to five water storage tanks in the town’s distribution system.
• Replace 3000 feet of sidewalks and curb and gutter in the town.
• Widen East Main Street (Route 99). Construct a 6,580-foot, four-lane road improvement to Virginia Department of Transportation standards to upgrade current two-lane road that is the main entrance road to the Town of Pulaski. Includes construction of two two-lane bridges and the rehabilitation of two existing two-lane bridges. Replace one 1970′s traffic signal.
Estimated cost of the Route 99 project is $7 million. Other estimated costs are: Gatewood, $1,075,000; picnic shelters and Calfee Park improvements, $1,025,000; water tank projects, $500,000; sidewalks, $300,000; and roof replacements, $60,000.
