Kalispell City Council weighs hiring firm for water system engineering services

Daily Inter Lake | December 5, 2022 12:00 AM

Kalispell City Council will consider contracting with engineering firm AE2S to provide the municipality with water system engineering services Monday.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at City Hall, 201 First Ave. E. The meeting can also be attended virtually via Zoom.

The city is seeking a company to design, develop and maintain a software system to control and analyze its public water system. The contract includes on-call system updates and maintenance as needed.

According to a report by the city manager’s office, AE2S was the only company that submitted a statement of qualifications for the contract. Public works staff has recommended that council award the project to the North Dakota-based firm, which specializes in water systems and other civil engineering projects.

The public is encouraged to submit questions or comments via email before the meeting at publiccomment@kalispell.com, or attend the meeting to comment in person.
