Tagish Engineering retained by town

Council has agreed to keep Tagish Engineering as its main engineer for 2015, but some concerns about the company did surface

Council has agreed to keep Tagish Engineering as its main engineer for 2015, but some concerns about the company did surface during the discussion prior to making that decision.

Mayor Rick Pankiw expressed surprise that the price of 51st Street project had gone up from the original quote by Tagish of $3.3 million to $4.4 million.

Coun. Matthew Jaycox said he was concerned Tagish Engineering did not include a completion date on their project reports.

“My personal opinion is any document should have a proposed completion date on it,” he said. “I don’t have an issue with Tagish continuing work for us. We just need a time frame (for the completion of projects),” he said.

Tagish Engineering has been the Town of Rimbey’s Engineers for the past several years.

In his report to council CAO Lucien Cloutier said the town has had a generally positive, on-going relationship with Tagish Engineering.

“At this time, we are recommending to continue using their services for the 2015 fiscal year. We believe that we should use 2015 as a review year in which to evaluate their services, with an aim to present council with a recommendation in October 2015, for 2016 and beyond.”
