The Washington Avenue Bridge project will be  one of the primary discussions of the evening.  “We’ve gone out to bid and the bids are being to the council,”said Edwards,” The recommendation from the staff is to accept the low bid which is well below the engineer’s estimate.  The amount for the bid is $1.144 million or just a but over that.  This is certainly within the certificates of participation funding source.”

Also making the agenda for Monday night’s session is a discussion regarding the purchase of four police vehicles.  “The suggestion is to go with the low bids with the exception of one case where the bid for two of the cars are very close and so the recommendation from staff is to go with the local vendor,” said Edwards,” There is only around $200 difference so we will see if the council agrees with that or not.”

The council will present service awards to the following individuals:

Robert Lawson – Lab Technician – Water Pollution Control Department – 25 years of service

Cheryl Layton – Record Tech – Police Department – 20 years of service

Kenneth Oswald – Sr. Equipment Operator – Street Department – 15 years of service
