Plainfield begins work with DOC

PLAINFIELD — The Department of Corrections in Plainfield is in need of help with its water and sewer utilities and the town of Plainfield is looking into taking over those functions.

Town Engineer Tim Belcher and counsel Mel Daniel have been working with the DOC to put details of the project together.

“We are really trying to fast track this project,” Belcher said. “We are asking a council member or two to join the team.”

The town staff thought the addition of town council members would help the process move along, as the councilmen can be better briefed and help speak for the council at meetings on the project.

“Eventually we know it will come back to the full council,” Belcher said. “This way we have one or two of you that really knows what is going on.”

Daniel said the group has set a deadline by the end of the calendar year to get details worked out and projects out for bid.

“The only way to get this done is to have multiple meetings,” he said. “And with the holidays coming up, it will be difficult to call that many special meetings.”

Belcher said one of the reasons for fast tracking the project is an offer from the State Revolving Loan Fund.

“The sooner we get the project ready, the better,” he said.

Council members Robin Brandgard and Bill Kirchoff said they would sit in on the meetings. Members Ed Gaddie and Kent McPhail said they would also make themselves available on a stand-by basis.

“I believe we need to get this done before the legislature starts,” Kirchoff said. “Once that starts, nothing happens.”

Brandgard said this opportunity with the State Revolving Loan Fund is important to secure a good deal for the town and its taxpayers.
