City Council awards bid for Lincoln Park street, utility project

The Glencoe City Council on Monday night accepted the low bid for the Lincoln Park street and utility improvement project from Duininck Brothers of Prinsburg for $5.85 million, about $40,000 under the engineer’s estimate. Six bids were received.
The City Council also set a public assessment hearing for Monday, March 23, at 7:15 p.m. Affected property owners will receive notices with their assessments prior to that hearing. Assessments on the project must be at least 20 percent of the total, according to Justin Black, city consulting engineer from Short Elliott Hendrickson (SEH). Assessments total about $1.3 million of the project cost.
Two alternatives are included in the bid, both are for improvements to the trunk sewer line running south of Buffalo Creek from about Ford Avenue east to the wastewater treatment plant. Black said those costs ($247,601), cannot be included in the bond, and must be paid by the city “with funds on hand.”
