Atlantic City Council approves Capital Improvement Projects


May 19th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Atlantic City Council Wednesday evening, approved five 2011 Capital Improvement Projects totaling nearly $2.7-million, and which are set to get underway soon. Following the receipt of bids, and upon recommendation by Snyder and Associates’ Engineer Dave Sturm, the Council awarded the Portland Cement Concrete (P.C.C.) Paving and Storm Sewer Improvements to Godberson-Smith Construction, from Ida Grove.

Sturm said their bid of just over $1.499-million was less than the Engineer’s estimate of $1.6-million. A Hot Melt Asphalt (H.M.A) Paving and Storm Sewer Improvement project was awarded to Carley Construction, of Treynor, who had the low bid of just over $709, 900.

The Sunnyside Park road resurfacing and parking improvement project was awarded to Western Engineering, whose bid of $365,583 was the lowest received and less than the engineer’s estimate of $426,877.

The Bull Creek Pathway widening and resurfacing project was awarded to Henningsen Construction, of Atlantic, for just over $78,000. And, the City Park sidewalk repair project was awarded to Betts and Beer Construction of Adair, for $27,697.

The projects, which were voted on individually, passed on a 6-to-1 vote, with Councilman Kern Miller providing the lone “nay” each vote in each case.
