R-160 – 4/17 – Accepting the bid and awarding a contract to Allied Construction Group for the hazard mitigation improvement of the Second Street pump station project in an amount not to exceed $2,396,000.00.

Councilman Fernando Gonzalez wanted to know what it would take have this item rebid.

B.A. Cruz said, “I can’t answer that, now.”

Gonzalez questioned, “Should we make an effort to rebid? It’s still the taxpayer’s money.”

Councilman Joel Pabon said, “It sounds good, but I would like a legal opinion.”

Acting Attorney Peter J. King said, “There was only one bid.”

Council President Bill Petrick gave a recap that this bid was requiring raising the motor’s generator and electrical components.”
