Is the company that builds the lagoon providing the only input the Town will have on its cost?

As was mentioned previously, Crystal Lagoons is providing information to the consulting firms so the firms can properly cost out the excavation costs, capital costs, and water treatment costs for the proposed lagoon project. While the information from Crystal Lagoons will be very helpful in the analyses required for the feasibility studies, there are other cost factors that will be examined such as the capital and operating costs for the beach and facilities, water, utilities, staffing, insurance, and other maintenance costs.

Even if this project were to proceed, it is not necessarily a foregone conclusion that Crystal Lagoons will receive the contract. Due to the anticipated size, scope, and dollar amount for the proposed project, it is conceivable that the project will be competitively bid. The Town Council could also determine that bidding out the project may not be in the best interests of the town because there may not be other companies with the expertise or background in building and maintaining such man-made beach and swimming lagoon facilities.
