The Minden City Council chamber was full and the agenda was long for the November 5 Minden City Council regular meeting.
Jeff Palik from Olsson Associates was present for the selection of bid sections for the Minden paving, drainage, and water improvements 2018 and selection of contractor. He told the council two bidders were very close while the third was significantly higher. Palik suggested accepting the bid from Blessing Construction, which came in the lowest, with all bid sections.
Although the total project cost reflected in the Blessing bid exceeds the budgeted bond levy amount, City Administrator Matt Cederburg explained that by using the three year gas tax savings along with the 2019 gas tax projection and a portion of the 2018-19 budgeted street repair amount, the overage can be covered. All bid sections and Blessing Construction were approved by the council.
