Eckville council awards Sidewalk Program

Eckville council awarded tender for the 2014 Sidewalk Program to Olds Concrete at an amount of $36,050

Eckville council awarded tender for the 2014 Sidewalk Program to Olds Concrete at an amount of $36,050 during Monday’s regular council meeting.

Administration, in a council report, noted that this year’s project would be a “bit smaller than last year’s.” A quotation form was compiled by administration along with operations team lead BJ Dyg, and invitations for submissions were presented to companies that worked for the town last year.

Quotations included the cost of the removal and replacement of about 130 metres of sidewalk, the construction of four ramps, concrete cutting and hauling, and landscaping.

Olds Concrete’s tender was one of two submitted; the other came from JT Concrete at an amount of $38,100.

Town staff were told Olds Concrete would arrive in Eckville near the beginning of next month, and possibly earlier.

The town is hoping to see the work completed prior to the arrival of winter.
