Sewer Line Repairs Underway at Cow Palace Inn

Using funds from the Lamar Redevelopment Authority, the Cow Palace Inn is replacing a long-broken sewer line that parallels Highway 50 in front of the motel. 

Renovation funds for the interior sewer lines had been earmarked by the motel’s new owners, but a total system replacement was not anticipated.  The exterior line needs to be replaced before the motel can open completely.  The project is connected the broken line with a replacement extending to the city’s sewer main in the southeast corner of the property. 

The funds, about $35,000, are coming from the Urban Redevelopment TIF account that has been accruing since the Redevelopment Authority was created.  Materials, including 350 feet of eight inch sewer pipe, cost $21,577 and labor and equipment is $13,340.  All other expenses will fall to the motel owner, Palace Holdings, LLC.  A presentation of the funding request was approved by the Authority this past October.

 An extensive remodeling project has been underway at the motel since late this summer.  A job fair was recently held at the motel for various positions, new bedding, toilets and tv’s have been installed in the rooms and the kitchen is also being renovated, along with new dining room furniture.
