Star Prairie Village Board approves $3,800 for water tower inspection

At their meeting last Wednesday evening, Star Prairie village trustees approved a proposal submitted by KLM Engineering, Inc. totaling $3,800 to inspect the water tower using a remotely operated vehicle.

The revised proposal addressed a number of concerns voiced previously by Village Attorney Tim Scott, satisfactorily.

"I just think you want to make sure we're clear with them about our cost versus $450,000 for the whole package. Their proposal spells out all of that long-term maintenance stuff," warned Scott. Trustees approved the KLM proposal unanimously.
