City cancels meeting on street bids

A Feb. 25 special meeting of the Albion City Council to consider street project bids was canceled after the bid opening last Friday.
The city has solicited bids for an extension of South Street from Seventh to Eighth Street, and for extension of Eighth Street to connect with South Street.
Only one bid from B-D Construction was received at the bid opening on Friday, Feb. 19. The bid of $504,000 for both street extensions was about $160,000 more than the city had budgeted for the work.
The projects and bid are now being reviewed by the pool engineering firm, Burbach and Associates, and the council will discuss a course of action at its next regular meeting on March 11.
