Commission awards bid for sewer project

8/06/09 (Thu)

After one swinging strike, the city might have gotten a hit.

After being forced by the N.D. Century Code to re-bid a sewer bore project in southeast Hazen because the low bid was more than 45 percent over the engineer’s first estimate, the Hazen City Commission approved a contractor’s bid for the sewer bore project in southwest Hazen at their meeting Monday evening.

Robert Gibb & Sons out of Fargo, the apparent low bidder at $158,853, was awarded the bid on the estimated $204,000 project, contingent on approval by the North Dakota State Department of Health.
