A community in the southeast took a gamble and it paid off.
  When tenders for Niverville's new lagoon came in well over budget this summer council decided to re-tender parts of the project in the hope of getting a better price.  Mayor Greg Fehr says one of the smaller tenders came back and it is $80,000.00 less than the previous bid.  He is optimistic that when they open the bids on their largest tender later this week the figures will be down as well.  That is great news for ratepayers because it means the figure on their tax bill will drop.  Initially ratepayers were going to have to shell out $170.00 per year but when the tenders came in over budget that number climbed to $300.00.  Now the hope is to see it in the $200.00 range.
