ST. JOSEPH -- The City of St. Joseph is looking to make improvements to their main pump station and collection system.

The city council will vote tonight on whether to start advertising for contract bids. The project is estimated to cost the city about $1.9-million.

City engineer Randy Sabart says there are a number of improvements that need to be made to the main pump station.

This project was included in their 2014 capital improvement plan. If the council votes to move forward with the bidding process they plan to review the bids at their April 17th meeting.

The proposed resolution states that bids must be received by the city administrator by 11:00 a.m. on April 16th.
