Two proposals for each of 9 road segments in the RFP were received and opened at the December Council meeting, one from A.B. Veirs (total $119,260) and another from M.T. Laney (total $123,545). It was the consensus of the Council that all segments could be completed in a three-year program. Because the proposals were similar in cost, and Darrell Anderson obtained excellent references for both firms, he proposed splitting the award for the current year between the firms: A.B. Veirs would resurface segments of Ridge Road for a total cost of $29,181 and M.T. Laney would resurface segments of Brown Street and Hickory Road for $22,410. Charlie Challstrom moved to award these contracts as proposed. Audrey Maskery seconded the motion.
Vote: 5-0, approved. Rob Gilmore will review the contracts before they are sent out.
