City to repaint downtown tower
Trinity Standard -
TRINITY – A bid of $48,000 to repaint the 100,000-gallon downtown water storage tower was accepted last week by the Trinity City Council. During the June 14 meeting, TPM Coating of Dayton won the water tower bid and agreed to paint “Trinity” on the side of the tank for an additional $500. The work will be financed by time warrants being issued through the First National Bank of Trinity. The city council approved issuing the warrants to cover the $48,500 payment to TPM plus any additional expenses that may occur. “If there are any more expenses, they will be minor, but I expect the total on the time warrants to be $48,500,” City Manager Buddy Drake said following the meeting. Drake noted that the city and the Trinity Independent School District are currently discussing building a second 100,000-gallon elevated storage tower on the on the front side of the Trinity High School campus off Highway 94 East. That project will be funded using Hurricane Ike Recovery Grant funded and when completed would boost water pressure going to the high school and middle school campuses as well as to residences throughout that area. In other action during the meeting, Joseph Wyble was named to the Blanche K. Werner Public Library Board.
