The Madison City Commission has approved a task order for engineering services for an electric distribution project in a new housing development in the city.  During their meeting Monday, commissioners approved a task order for professional services for DGR Engineering to provide the professional services for the electric distribution project for Cyber Estates.  Cyber Estates is a new development in the northeast part of the city.

The electric distribution project covered by the engineering services agreement includes new underground circuitry to provide service to and within the new Cyber Estates Development.  The total cost for the professional services is estimated to be just more than 24-thousand dollars.

Commissioner Bob Thill questioned the need for the city to spend the money hiring a different engineer for the project.  Utilities Director Brad Lawrence said that a registered electrical engineer is required for the project.

City Engineer Chad Comes said it is good to have an engineer experienced in electrical systems handle the services for the electric distribution project.

Commissioners unanimously approved the task order.
