CEDAR LAKE | The Town Council has awarded a contract to build a storage tank for E85 fuel.

The project had only one bidder, Grimmer Construction of Highland at $44,000.

The town is using federal dollars to build the tank.

Because $175,000 had been allocated, the remainder of the monies will go into Cedar Lake’s Cumulative Capital Development Fund.

E85 is an abbreviation for an ethanol blend fuel, 85 percent of which is denatured ethanol. U.S. government subsidies encourage the use of E85, which has a high octane rating and is less carbon intensive than petroleum.

The storage tank will hold E85 fuel provided free by the federal government for use in police vehicles.
