Work is well underway towards completing the Dunn Heat Exchangers plant north of Bay City on Texas 60.

   August is the new completion date for Dunn Heat Exchangers plant, with the City of Bay City and Dunn agreeing to share the work and costs for water and sewer lines and a lift station in a special city council meeting June 4. 
   The first attempt to put all three projects into one package for prospective contractors produced bids that were over estimates in mid-May.
   That prompted Public Works Director Barry Calhoun to bid all three projects separately, and the city opened those bids in late May. 
   While the totals for the three separate projects were lower this time around, they were still about $200,000 higher than the original projected cost of $800,000 for all three.
   City council member Bill Cornman advised Calhoun at council’s May 28 meeting to go over the bids with Peter Dunn Jr., president of the Texas City-based Dunn Heat Exchangers.
   Dunn was at council’s special meeting last week.
