The Iowa City City Council will consider a resolution approving the selection of an engineering consultant for the Iowa City Landfill reconstruction project.

The resolution would award the contract for the reconstruction of the fiscal 2009 landfill cell, which was damaged by fire last year.

The fire, which broke out on May 26, 2012, burned more than 7.5 acres of the landfill, destroying most of the fiscal ’09 landfill cell.

The city staff membes recommend that the city award the contract to J.B. Holland of Decorah, Iowa, which gave the lowest base bid of $1.3 million. The estimate is well under the city engineer’s previous estimate of $1.67 million.

The project will be funded with landfill revenues.
