The other two bids came in a t $45,542, submitted by Tri-County Services and $46,227.10, submitted by Glenaire Construction. Council decided to go with the low bid submitted by Tri-County Services for the project that will see new sidewalks in various portions of the city.
Council is awaiting approval of a much larger grant to replace sidewalks on Janssen Avenue between 4th Street and Cherry Streets in the city.
Council also approved the additional expenditure of $4273.68 in regards to the resurfacing and repair work done to Fairgrounds Road. The road work was a cost-share project with Polk County.
