Nine bids were received for the North East Township waterline project. At a 10AM meeting on December 23rd, the bids were opened. The amounts ranged from a low of $478,279.00 to a high of $893,398.00. The low bidder was Mortimer’s Excavating, Inc.
Supervisors and Hill Engineering will go over the bids to be sure they meet all specifications before announcing the winner. Supervisors indicated the bid will be awarded at one of the next two supervisors meetings. Work on the waterline project needs to begin as soon as possible and must be completed by April because of a Route 5 repaving project scheduled to begin at that time.
