Splash pad bids in, work moves forward
After taking separate bids for the proposed splash pad in Prairie Park for the electrical, concrete and modular wall work, Otsego has decided to go with the original bid from Blackstone Contractors.
The Blackstone bid for all three components was thought to be too high at $81,162.
However, when bids for the three parts of the work came in, the separate low bids were nearly equal to the Blackstone bid.
Otsego City Engineer Ron Wagner recommended to the city council that it accept the Blackstone bid as it would be easier to work with one contractor that with three different ones and the coordination that would require.
Council approved the Blackstone bid on a 4-0 vote.
