$150,000 Saved in Bids for Two Contracts

The Pella City Council was pleased to approve two resolutions Tuesday night regarding the construction, and materials contracts for the 2013 Electric Distribution Conversion Project. Engineers had estimated that the two contracts would total over $900,000, however each bid was significantly lower than expected, and the two contracts totaled just over $752,000. City Administrator Mike Nardini says that MasTec from Shevlin Minnesota won the contractor’s bid for the project, while four companies won bids for the materials needed. Nardini adds that substantial completion of this project is expected by June of 2014.
