Aquatic Park Progress

    Today 10 potential bidders showed up at the Burkburnetts City Hall to seek more information about the bidding process for the future Family Aquatic Center. Burkburnett has a 4 to 4.2 million dollar budget  for the project. Many contractors had questions over the water issues that the area is dealing with. 
    Currently drought restrictions prohibit construction meters to be utilized. Burkburnett Public Works Director Michael Whaley says the town will construct a new water well on the same site as the Aquatic Center. This well will only be used for construction of the project and then maintain the pool water itself.
    The shell of the former Burkburnet pool is still located at the site, contractors will be responsible for demolishing and removing it. The Landscape Architect for the project, Austin Powers, says that there could be underground piping that below the shell that might also need to be removed. Powers job is to help facilitate the bidding and make sure everyone abides by Burkburnetts rules. 
    Though only 10 bidders showed up today, more could still possibly bid on the project. Whaley says that the bids are due at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday December 12th. Burkburnett hopes to break ground on the project by early February.
