Royal council delays water tower project decision
Another firm allowed to submit proposal for consideration
September 22, 2022
Rather than accepting a bid for painting and repairing the water tower, the Royal City Council decided to delay a decision so another firm can prepare a proposal for consideration next month.
Representatives of Viking Industrial Painting, of Omaha, Neb., were in Royal on Sept. 15 and learned the city was considering proposals for work on the water tower. They surveyed the structure and asked the council for time to conduct a thorough inspection.
"I know we came in very late. We realize you were in the late stages of making a decision," said Sales Representative Rob Jongquist.
