City Council approves Resolution No. 07R, Series of 2020; Rejecting Bids in Response to Request for Proposals for Purchase of City of Aledo Water / Wastewater Systems. The City duly published a notice of request for proposals and held a bid opening at the regular meeting of the City Council on February 3, 2020. The City received responsive bid proposals from Illinois American Water Company and Aqua Illinois, Inc. The Water, Sewer & Storm Drain Committee of the Aledo City Council met on February 4, 2020 to review the bid proposals, and the Committee has recommended that the Council reject both bids.
The City Council previously retained Illinois American Water Company to perform the work necessary to oversee operations of the City’s Water System pursuant to a System Operations Agreement. The City has determined that it is advisable, necessary and in the best interest of the municipality’s public health, safety, and welfare to terminate the Illinois American Water Company agreement and to retain Ion Environmental Solutions to perform the work necessary to oversee operations of the City’s Water System on the terms and conditions set forth in the Operation and Maintenance Service Agreement.
