KISSIMMEE, Fla., March 8, 2:00 p.m. – The Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) board of directors has awarded a $1,022,120 construction contract to Alabama-based Big Warrior Corp. for the relocation of a gas pipeline that fuels the utility’s Cane Island Power Park in Osceola County, FL.

The relocation will accommodate future expansion of the Reunion Resort & Club of Orlando and potential widening of County Road 545.

Construction begins this month and is slated to be completed in early April.

As co-owners of the pipeline, Florida Municipal Power Agency will be responsible for 50 percent of the total relocation cost.

Founded in 1901, KUA is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric, water, and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
