$347,000 low bid on Ream Street, $260,000 low bid on Eric Wolber project

Council will act on bid acceptance soon

By Monty Siekerman
Village officials recently opened bids for the Ream Street sewer project and improvement of part of Eric Wolber Avenue in Grass Run Industrial Park.

Zee Contractor's bid of $347,000 was the lowest of three bids for the sewer project. Zee is from Ottawa.

Hohenbrink Excavating's bid of $260,000 was the lowest of 10 bids submitted for the Eric Wolber project. Hohenbrink is from Holland, Ohio.

Eighty percent of the cost of the sewer project and 88 percent of the cost of the street project will be paid for by state grants.

Council has not met to decide the winning bidders.

The Ream Street storm sewer project is to prevent future flooding in the area. The sewer will run along Ream from Lincoln to Lehr, then west on Lehr to Simon, then south on Simon to University.

Eric Wolber Avenue will be reconstructed on the east side of Associated Plastics.
