Three companies have submitted bids to test smoke from the city’s sewer lines to locate where rainwater is entering the pipes. Rainier’s wastewater treatment plant is often overwhelmed during storms, resulting in fines for the city. The smoke tests will allow the city to locate areas for repair. ADS bid on the project for approximately $ 33,000, SFE Global for approximately $ 15,800 and AIMS for approximately $ 19,200.
City council will also vote on two bids for the D Street improvement project, one from Thompson Bros. Excavating for approximately $ 214,300 and one from Advanced Excavating Specialists for approximately $ 203,600. The project is funded by 2013 and 2020 Oregon Small Town Award Grants and includes the installation of new manholes, pipes and catch basins, as well as the resurfacing of West Third Street, West E Street and West F Street.

To relocate the currently unused walkway, volunteers recently cleaned up the Riverfront Trail. The board will consider an offer from LCD Excavation for just under $ 160,000. The bridge would connect the municipal park and the new trail.
Hamer Electric has made an offer of around $ 10,300 to replace a city street light and light fixture, which the council will review.
A wood sale project also on the Monday evening agenda. The 34-acre crop, with an estimated volume of 25,000 board feet per acre, is expected to cost about $ 637,500. The current average price of logs is $ 750 per thousand board feet. After $ 145,500 in costs to harvest and replant the seedlings, the city estimates a net income of just under $ 492,000.
