Y " I~ Thus with the options in the contract th s plant cost i $245.71 over the original bid. li ,The storm and sanitary sewer system was built bvl Thorburn & Logozzo, whose bid was $316,48o.24. The bicl included cost of repairing streets, and when the city de-I tided to have the city crew do this work, $23,051:50 was withheld from the contract price, leaving the amount bid at $293,432.74. actual cost was $288,645.68, or $4< 787.06 less than the bid. In addition to this the city se- cured an extension of the storm sewer on French avenue which amounted to about $2,500, and extensions of the sanitary sewer in several instances amounting to an addi- tional $2,000, all within the amount actually paid the contractor. There were other expenditures in connection with the project, such as purchase of site, engineering, legal fees, etc all, however being within the amount available under the bond issue. As for the street repair job. While it is not moving as rapidly as some wonld like it the city street crew is do- ing an excellent job in overcoming tile t,orn up streets. In some instances streets have been regraded, the high center crown being reduced and blacktop laid curb to curb, as on French a(enue. Indications are that most of the streets will be put back in as good or better eonditi.on ' than before the construction job started. It w ouht seem, therefore, that a: we put the dust and the mud and tile torn up streets behind us, and enter] 2 the period of convalescence, we might be in a mood to/ compliment the administration that had the fortitude to[ Pounds go ahead with an improvement much needed, although painful in that it levied an assessment on our pocket- book's and caused us nmch inconvenience during the oper- ation. We now have a sanitary sewer system vith mod- ern sewage treatment plant, and a basic storm sewer sys- tem that may be extended for proper drainage of storm waters from all sections of the city.
