A miss is as good as a mile, or so they say. Better yet, for the city of Kingston, a second or two was worth $700,000.
At a Dec. 6 work session, Kingston City Council learned that Haren Construction Co. of Etowah has been recognized as low bidder on expansion of the Kingston wastewater treatment plant.
The capacity of the plant is being doubled from 1 million gallons to 2 million gallons per day, and Haren’s low bid was $4.712 million on Nov. 8.
