Bid accepted for wastewater project
The Coming City Council met in a special meeting on Monday, June 22 at 1 p.m. at City Hall. The meeting was to discuss the lowest bid received on the wastewater project funded by a $1,045 million loan from the USDA Rural Development. The loan is for 40 years. A year ago, engineer, John Selig described the project during a public meeting about the project as “rehab four of the major lift stations in town, which is Lockwood Drive, Bryan, one by the swimming pool and one on Lee Drive over the north side of the high school, baseball field.” Selig said that he wrote the funding application in a manner to take care of the issue that they’re having down on the south end of Fifth Street where it hits Sand Street.
After a forum was declared the meeting began with Selig presenting the lowest bidder for the project. The city took bids on the wastewater project last Thursday, June 18. There were two bids that were received. He explained that one bid was from GCE, Inc. that did work on the Griggs lift station by the former Walmart building. The other company was Doxa Construction out of Sherwood. Selig said, “The bids were relatively close. The low bid was $740,165.50. I've gone, I've checked their numbers. Both of them added everything up properly. Doxa Construction was the low bidder. I've checked their bonding agent and they're on their approved list of agencies. And they did have a current contractor's license. I can tell you that I personally have never done any work with these guys. I've talked to some folks that have, they don't have any bad words, you know, nothing negative to say about them.”
