Braham receives bids for wastewater treatment plant update

The Braham City Council heard an update on the city’s multimillion-dollar wastewater treatment plant update at last week’s meeting.

City engineer Jon Pauna, with Moore Engineering, said two bids were received for the project. The low bid came from Magney Construction, out of Chanhassen, for about six and a half million dollars.

"The low bid with Magney is a little over our estimate," Pauna explained. "Our estimate at the time of bidding was $6 million."

The second bid came from Eagle Construction, in Little Falls, for just over $10 million.

Pauna said he’ll return for the council’s special meeting on Sept. 19 with a recommendation for accepting a bid.

"Magney is a good company," Pauna said. "They do a lot of projects around the state, so as far as qualifications go, we got a good company as the low bidder, for sure."

Braham's water infrastructure improvements were funded at over $10 million in a capital investment bill passed during the state legislature.

Street reconstruction projects, with West Central Drive as the priority, are part of the infrastructure upgrade plans.

Pauna anticipates Braham road projects to get underway in late September or early October of 2024.
