08/25/11 Plymouth City Engineer Rick Gaul told the Board of Public Works and Safety that they intend to patch the worse spots on First Street. He indicated that the area to be improved was about a 450 foot section.
The project was originally slated for a more extensive work on the 2011 street projects was pulled when bids were opened and they were too high. Now that most of the street-work is nearing completion Gaul said some money is available. He requested that he be allowed to take proposals to patch the 450 feet of 1st Street in the area of Emergency Fork Lift. That company has actually placed a barricade to stop drivers from using their parking lot as part of the roadway.
City Clerk-Treasurer, Toni Hutchings suggested that they take bids for both types of project, the complete road way and the patch job. Gaul estimated that the full project could reach $90,000 and the patching approach could be in the $55,000-$60,000 range. The Board of Public Works and Safety agreed with Hutchings and voted to proceed with the proposals and bids.
