Brad opened the bids for projects. Brad began with the one and only bid for the 170th paving job. The bid was from American Asphalt for 99,394.46. American Asphalt’s representative, Preston, was present to confirm. Brad made a motion to accept the bid as is, Kiel seconded the motion, motion carried. Motion carried.
Brad opened the other bids for the 130th project. The quest system was used and three bids were received for it. A-1, Haas, and one from McCabe. A-1 was the low bidder at 610,889.08. Brad discussed concerns with the costs due to state reimbursement limitations. Brad discussed with engineers about cost saving such as culvert replacement, 350th asphalt limits, and sign replacement. These brought prices down to 585,767, with the possibility of future saving of 7200 if pit run is not needed in one location of the road but that is to be determined.
Brad did note for the record that after itemization, and recalculation, Haas actually came in lower. State however does not allow us to change bidders and we must take the lowest bid no matter what. Brad made a motion to expect the lowest bid of A-1 excavating due to state statutes. Kiel seconded the motion. The motion carried.
