The Cedaredge Town Board has awarded the Westador major street improvements project to low bidder Eco Contracting LLC of Hotchkiss.
Trustees selected the contractor, authorized town staff to coordinate contract provisions, and authorized the mayor to execute the contract for the work during a special meeting held on Nov. 8.
There were three bids total, including the low bid of $374,258. The high bid was $449,386.
The Westador street improvement project will rebuild streets in the subdivision, widen pavement in most areas, and fix street drainage problems.
Some residents who have been using town right-of-way for landscaping and fencing will be allowed to continue doing so. But they will have to pay an annual lease to the town for continued use of the land in future, reported mayor Pat Means.
The Westador is the first of the town's projects under its major streets improvement project funded by a one-half percent sales tax approved by voters in 2007.
The town has since accumulated about $326,000 from that tax which will be used to pay for most of the Westador improvements work.
The Westador subdivision is located off of Grand Mesa Drive and west of the Dollar General Store.blog comments powered by Disqus
