Stewart receives favorable bid for proposed improvement project

The city of Stewart has received a very favorable bid for a proposed street and utility improvement project, the City Council heard at its Monday night meeting.
 
Andy Kehren of Bolton & Menk, the city’s engineering consultant, said the apparent low bid is $2.73 million from LaTour Construction of Maple Lake, which is about 6 percent less than the engineer’s estimate of $2.89 million.
 
Kehren said seven bids had been received for the proposed project.
 
While the bid is favorable, Kehren said it cannot awarded just yet.
 
“It’s contingent on the outcome of the assessment hearing, and it’s contingent on receiving favorable funding from the PFA (Public Facilities Authority),” Kehren said.
