The council agreed Sweitzer Engineering, recently acquired by Krebs Engineering, will handle its remaining projects for the city.
The company is conducting a water study and improving facilities at Big Springs. The city will then issue a request for proposals for other engineers to handle the city’s projects.
Also, the council will allow a water line extension to four properties as requested by Jeffrey Webb and three other property owners near Broomtown Road. The city requires them to pay the expense of the water line extensions.
The council denied developer Larry Stanfield’s request to relocate the city water main for his Deer Run subdivision on Broomtown Road, LaFayette city manager Johnnie Arnold said.
