Tippy-Chapman Sewer Project One Of County’s Largest
Total cost for the Tippecanoe and Chapman Regional Sewer District project will be around $51 million, the Kosciusko County Commissioners heard Tuesday. Ken Jones, CEO with architecture and engineering firm Jones Petrie Rafinski Corp., said the project “is probably going to rank right up there with one of the largest, maybe the largest, infrastructure project that has occurred here in the county.” He said the project went forward but then was delayed a little bit in 2020 because of Covid. “But throughout that process, you helped us populate the trustees board, and coming out of 2020 they went to work head-on and didn’t waste any time.” Jones said the design was pulled together working with the board of trustees, sometimes multiple meetings in one week to make sure they were making progress. The bidding was done this year, with closing on funding following. Jones said they’re having a pre-construction meeting in the next few days.
