GOOD HOPE - The Good Hope City Council on Monday night awarded a bid for engineering services to CDG Engineers & Associates, Inc. The services are required for a new pump station as a part of the city’s sewer expansion project. The pump station must be completed before AGCOR Steel can move to the city.

Good Hope Mayor Jerry Bartlett said the station will cost $250,000, for which the city is applying for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Bartlett said he feels it is critical to move quickly on this issue and get the grant for the sewer work as soon as possible.

AGCOR Steel is moving to Good Hope from Vinemont and will be Good Hope’s first manufacturer. The new facility will sit on 53 acres on Industrial Drive. The company will add up to 20 new jobs and is expected to have annual sales of $8-$10 million.  

AGCOR is a manufacturer of metal building components.

The council also surplussed a 2009 Ford F350.

The Good Hope City Council will have its next meeting on May 14 at 6:30 p.m. at Good Hope City Hall.
