City council has approved a contract with Elmvale-based Diamond Head Sprinklers for upgrades to the White Water Park splash pad in South Porcupine.The work, given the green light during Tuesday night’s meeting, will cost the City of Timmins $394,875, plus HST.
It remains to be seen, however, exactly when work on the project will get under way.
“The schedule was part of the evaluation criteria,” said Gerry Paquette, the city’s supervisor of projects.
“Unfortunately, the RFP (request for proposals) closed back in September 2020 and the schedules submitted by all of the bidders were based on the RFP being awarded shortly thereafter.
