The Carroll County Public Service Authority has put out a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the design work of the Fancy Gap Water Project at Exit 8 off Interstate 77.
PSA Director Ray Hill told the PSA during its March 10 meeting that an application for funding for the Fancy Gap Water Project has been sent to the health department. At least 50 percent of the residents plus one must be signed up when applications are sent in, Hill said, but he thought that number had been reached.
When the authority originally went out for bid to do the preliminary engineering report (PER) on the Fancy Gap project, it was done so with the procurement that the successful bidder may also do the design work. Adams-Heath Engineering was the successful bidder on the PER. But Chairman David Hutchins wondered if the authority should bid out the design work separately for the project.
What is the wishes of the board, do you want to continue with that RFP under that proviso or do you wish to do an RFP for design work? Hutchins asked. Guys, I come from a different world. I am used to competing everything
