Atlantic City Council to meet this evening


April 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The City Council in Atlantic will hold a regularly scheduled meeting this evening at City Hall. During the 5:30-p.m. session, the council will receive a report from Nishna Valley Family YMCA Director Dan Haynes. They’ll also review quotes and consider awarding a contract for, remodeling of the Street Maintenance Building.

The Council on March 21st, authorized the placing of advertisements for bids, the opening for which was held April 11th. Five bidders received plans, but only one bidder, Les Beers, submitted a bid ($47,355), which was about $5,000 more than the engineer had estimated.

City Administrator Doug Harris and Street Department Superintendent Derald Andersen met with Engineer Tim Teig, from Snyder and Associates, and were reviewing the options for modifying plans for the project, in hopes of reducing the cost. Teig will review the bid before the Council this evening, and make any adjustments that are negotiated. Harris says funding for the project would come from2011 bond proceeds ($15,000), with the balance funded through the Road Use Tax Fund.

The Council will also act on a change order for the Portland Cement Concrete patching contract with Ten Point Construction, amounting to $75,937.  The change order reflects the addition of patch work on Lincoln Street to the contract. The project is expected to begin later this Spring.
