N. King Street Paving Request – UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED
A bid to conduct milling and paving on N. King Street from E. Market Street to Tracy Street was approved by the council. The bid was awarded to Delmarva Paving at a cost of $72,578. Town Manager Gene Dvornick said Municipal Street Aid and Community Transportation Funds will cover the costs.
BidURenergy Contract Renewal – UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED
A contract for the town’s electric supply for the next 24 months was awarded to Direct Energy at a cost of $0.6967 per kilowatt hour.
Primeros Pasos Parking Lot Paving – UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED
A request from First Steps Primeros Pasos was considered and approved by the council during the Town Manager’s Departmental Report. The daycare requested the town serve as a conduit for legislative Community Transportation Funds to be used to assist in paving their parking lot on Savannah Road. By serving as a conduit, the town is not responsible for the cost of paving. Rather, the paving must be completed in accordance to town-mandated procedures, such as having the director of Public Works review the bids. The council approved the request, but would like to meet with representatives from Primeros Pasos regarding onsite upgrades.
