City chooses low bidder for 2017 street improvements

After submitting the lowest bid, Nowthen-based North Valley Inc. was selected by the city to complete the 2017 street improvement project work.

A total of seven bids were received for the work, ranging from $3.8 million to $4.8 million.
A project budget of $4.5 million was included in the approved 2017 Capital Improvement Plan. The low bid came in about $700,000, or 15 percent, less than the estimate, according to city documents.

The planned work is scheduled to take place between April 17 and October 2017. — Rachel Minske, Contributing Writer
