Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Kennemore are congratulated by Greer CPW General Manager Nick Stegall for winning $100 in a drawing among the utlity's eBill program.

The Greer Commission of Public Works approved the purchase of two Water Treatment Plant Peerless High Level pumps for $99,820 today. Commissioners agreed with General Manager Nick Stegall to award the contract to PNUCOR, headquartered in Charlotte.

The purchase ($49,910 each) is to replace one worn and one broken pump, each with 40 years of service on them.

The pumps are routinely delivered within 16-18 weeks of orders placed. CPW is hoping for relief on that timetable since one rotating assembly has already been ordered. Commissioners agreed two new pumps would be more cost effective and efficient in updating the existing pumps.

Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Kennemore won $100 in the CPW’s eBill program. Customers who enrolled during the contest or were already in the eBill program were eligible. The Kennemore’s were introduced to commissioners.

The monthly commission meeting also:

• Approved setting a base rate for CPW’s Compressed Natural Gas fast-fill station. The $1.70 price will be standard but will be adjusted by the cost of wholesale gas. Fluctuations could result in higher or lower consumer costs.

• A canopy over the fast-fill dispenser that will have security cameras, and more lighting is scheduled for the station at 115 Duke Street, behind the CPW maintenance facility.

• Buoys have been placed along Lake Cunningham to steer boaters 200 feet away from the dam’s overflow.

• CPW reported February expenditures of $1.6 million and actual income of $1.1 million. Commissioners acknowledged that bills remained unpaid that should bring the deficit in line with expenditures.

• Modular and mobile homes have been removed from the inland port site in preparation for CPW’s additional infrastructure. Removal of homes is imminent.

• CPW is providing service to inland port companies in the construction phrase: Clary Hood, site preparation, Ragnar Benson, site management, and Evans Construction, building warehouse.

• Additional lighting will be provided by CPW along the road that will be constructed from J. Verne Smith Parkway into the port.
