The city has awarded a contract for engineering services on their sewage lagoon expansion.

Stantec Consulting Ltd was selected among five proposals for the work earlier this month by city council.

At a cost of $1,114,136.96, Stantec's proposal was not the lowest, but it was the most comprehensive according to city officials.

The first step for them is to take a lagoon study completed eight years ago and make sure the design for the expansion is still relevant today.

Stantec will also develop the tender documents and provide consulting services during the construction phase.

That tender is expected be issued next year, with construction slated to start next summer and take anywhere from 14 to 16 months to complete.
