|Four companies seek to operate Ferriday water system|
Engineer Bryant Hammett outlined planned upgrades this week for the Ferriday water system and said the town has received four proposals from companies wishing to operate the water system.
The companies were identified as Womack & Sons, Harrisonburg; Cecil D. Gassiott LLC, Alexandria; Triton AMI, Hammond; and Rig Masters Inc., Monterey.
The company chosen will be in charge of operating the system.
"We cannot go any further with this project until a third party operator is in place," said Hammett.
Hammett said that operator should be in place by April 16.
"Ferriday is not being singled out as far as having to have a third party as an operator," said Hammett. "This is something the USDA recently adopted."
"I just hope we can get a good provider," said Ferriday mayor Glen McGlothin. "This is very important and we are ready to get started."
Hammett said the probable cost for the entire project is $6,985,724. It is funded by a $1,384,000 loan over 40 years with an interest rate of 2.375 percent. The town received a $5,201,724 grant from USDA, a $250,0000 grant from the State of Louisiana and $150,000 from Wal-Mart which the town receives each year for 10 years.
