What is the justification for the gate structure and Ornamental fencing ($266,460?)? Could you provide the locations of these "similar facilities" that have this type of expensive gate and ornamental fencing for my reference?
The current cost estimates state that the "chain-link property security fencing is owner-provided." Who is the "owner?" Will the rest of the property fencing be chain-link fence topped with barbed wire?
Green Valley is building and operating a wastewater treatment plant that will allow us to serve many constituents. Green Valley is "the owner." While fencing is listed as "ornamental," we do not intend to spend unnecessary sums for fencing.
We do, however, intend to install fencing that is appropriate, weather-resistant, and fitting with that of GVSUD buildings. The entrance structure to the facility will be the most visible portion of the facility. The entrance structure will project a professional, first-class wastewater treatment facility that will instill confidence that the plant is well designed and operated.
It will suffice for the next 40-50 years and be one of the main or only GVSUD structures that many people will see and remember.
Note, ornamental fencing will not enclose the entire perimeter of the plant.
