For Phase Two of the project, which includes work to be completed on the east side of the city, Halme had the low bid of just more than five-point-nine-million dollars. For the city’s Water Tower Loop Line portion of the Phase Two project, Halme, Incorporated had the low bid of just more than 485-thousand dollars.
As far as Phase 1-B of the city’s water system improvements, the bid was awarded to J&J EarthWorks of Milbank, who had the low bid of just more than three-million dollars on the portion of the project in the western part of the city. Commissioners also awarded J&J EarthWorks the bid on two bid alternates. The bids awarded by the commission are all contingent on approval by USDA Rural Development.
Mayor Marshall Dennert announced at the end of Tuesday’s meeting also that residents need to be aware of the amount of work that will be starting on some of the city’s streets and neighborhoods this summer.
Dennert said that they are working on getting a map of the different project phases put on the city’s website as well.
