WARSAW — Kosciusko County Commissioners are receiving sealed bids for work related to the County Public Safety Communication Infrastructure Project at a special commissioners meeting to be held at 9 a.m. Dec. 15.
The project consists of infrastructure work for public safety communications and wireless broadband. Work will occur at several sites. Each of the three public safety communication sites will consist of a 75’ x 75’ compound containing a three-legged, 300’ or 400’ tall public safety communication tower (previously bid), an equipment shelter, a diesel-fired generator, an electrical transformer and an electrical service disconnect switch.
Each compound will be surfaced in gravel and accessed by a gravel drive. The foundation for each tower will consist of three concrete piers, extending into the ground and onto a reinforced concrete mat foundation. The shelters, generators and transformers will have concrete bases. Each tower will have obstruction lighting. Each compound is enclosed with a chain link fence with barbed wire along the top.
As part of the bidding, there is an alternate for two additional tower sites, to be used primarily for broadband distribution. The compounds are similar to, but smaller than, the public safety communication compounds.
The project also includes work at the Kosciusko Co. Dispatch Center located in the basement of the Kosciusko County Justice Building. Work includes replacement of dispatch consoles and carpeting.
Bids will be read aloud after 9 a.m. Bids received after the bid time will be returned unopened. Faxed or e-mailed bids will not be accepted.
