Fire station, street bid choices made
A couple of topics that were once huge items got overwhelmed by other things when they came up again at last week’s City Council meeting. One was bids on streets for the Robinson Addition housing development, and the other was a change order on the new fire station to cover defective concrete with ceramic tile.
Councilmen knew what was coming on both topics, and both passed with virtually no discussion.
On the housing addition, a bid of $144,154 by Circle S Paving of Clinton was accepted for curbs, gutters and asphalting of the three streets in the development, which has been in the planning stages for more than two years.
Circle S had submitted the lone bid at the Nov. 19 meeting, and it was tabled at that time.
Mayor Seth Adams made the lone comment before last week’s vote, stating, “We came in under budget.”
