Green River City Council to Consider Bid for Lincoln School Tracts

GREEN RIVER — During the Green River City Council meeting Tuesday, the Council will consider a $70,000 bid for the old Lincoln School tracts B and C.

The Green River City Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday night at Green River City Hall.

The bid opening for the Lincoln tracts B and C was held on November 10, and resulted in just one bid from JS Construction in the amount of $70,000. The proposed project would be for 29 single-family residential lots.

If the Council chooses to award the bid, JS Construction stated the dirt work would be done in April 2022, and water and sewer would go in during the months of May and June. Curbs and gutters would be constructed in either July or August, and in September the gas, asphalt, and power would be put in.

Additionally, the Green River Public Works Department is recommending the Council reject the two bids that were received for the wastewater treatment plant replacement facility.

“Each of the bids exceeded the total funds available for the project by a significant amount. In addition, the apparent low bid contained a discrepancy in its Disadvantaged Business Enterprise documents that make the bid ineligible for concurrence from our funding agency. Therefore, we have no choice but to recommend rejecting all bids received for the project,” Council documents state.

The wastewater project consists of the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant to replace the city’s aging lagoon treatment system.
