Fire Department Vehicle Replacements

Building a safe community means, in part, having public safety vehicles on which first responders can depend. To maximize dollars and ensure working vehicles, the Town plans and budgets for replacement vehicles on a scheduled basis through its fleet replacement program.

At its next meeting, Town Council will consider three fire vehicles as part of the program. 

Castle Rock Fire and Rescue is requesting a new brush truck and two new engines. The department has already saved $418,837 for the brush truck and $1,390,326 for the engines. The brush truck is coming in under budget at $299,650, and the engines are coming slightly over budget ($1,411,067) including contingency. It’s the department’s goal to avoid contingency and still come in at or under budget when the vehicles are delivered in 2018. These vehicles are part of the replacement process. Vehicles associated with the new fire station will be purchased separately in 2018. 

Town Council will consider two purchase agreements – one for the brush truck and one for the two engines.

Channel improvements along Hangman’s Gulch Trail

Making sure the community stays safe from flooding is a top priority for Castle Rock Water’s Stormwater Division. With that in mind, the department will be presenting a construction contract Tuesday to Town Council for improvements along Hangman’s Gulch Trail. The improvements would be within the channel to help reduce erosion and sedimentation along the trail between I-25 and the confluence with East Plum Creek.

Council will consider the $676,065 contract with Hudick Excavating, Inc. If approved, construction would begin in February 2018. Weather permitting, substantial completion would be anticipated for June 2018.

Construction contract for new Founders Arapahoe water well 

As communities throughout Colorado continue to grow, Castle Rock Water is taking proactive actions to help meet increased water demands. In an effort to secure additional water supplies and keep pace with demand, Castle Rock Water is planning to drill a new water well. 

The Founders Arapahoe Well CR-227 will be located near Matney Park, and in combination with a Denver well drilled this fall, is anticipated to produce about .85 million gallons of water per day. Town Council will consider a construction contract Tuesday with Hydro Resources – Rocky Mountain Inc. The total drilling cost is approximately $1.6 million and is part of a larger $5.3 million project to incorporate the wells into the water system.
