Warden picks contractor for police station work

Print Article

WARDEN — The Warden City Council awarded Stan’s Construction of Moses Lake a contract to renovate the bathrooms at the Warden Police Station, including the removal of asbestos that was found in the floor tile and in the covering on the drywall, during a regular city council meeting on Tuesday. Out of the nine contractors that were requested to submit a bid, only one responded, according to Kriss Shuler, Warden city administrator.

“The council determined to award to that bid, rather than start over,” said Shuler. “It went to Stan’s Construction, from Moses Lake. We have not worked previously with them.”

In other business, the East Columbia Basin Irrigation District approved two permits that will allow the West Warden Sewer Project to encroach on its property. The city has also applied for a permit to bore under the Columbia Basin Railroad to install a pipe under the railroad as part of the sewer project.

Shuler said that the city is getting an estimate to repair the pillars at the gate of the cemetery. The pillars were damaged at the end of January in a vehicle accident.

The police department is still dealing with some graffiti tagging. They are cleaning it up and trying to find the perpetrator. During a city council meeting two weeks ago, Warden Chief of Police Rick Martin first reported that there has been tagging around town.
