The purpose of this meeting was discussion and action regarding bids for inspection for the Cedar Street/Nachreiner Avenue project that were submitted by Strand Associates, Inc. and Westbrook Associated Engineers, Inc.


The meeting was called to order by President Ellenbolt at 6:32 p.m.


Trustee Kraemer, Streets Committee Chair, informed the board that the Committee met and recommends Westbrook Associated Engineers, Inc. for the inspection of the Cedar Street/Nachreiner Avenue project. In comparing the bids, Westbrook is $3.00 less per hour, but had quoted more hours. Having a different firm inspect would be a good checks and balances on these systems. It also may be better if the inspector is focused on one project so there is nothing missed on either of our projects. Trustee Schluter was concerned with the cost to get Westbrook up to speed. Kraemer indicated that the plans are bought and we are just asking for inspection and civil layout. Kraemer motioned to approve Westbrook Associated Engineers, Inc. Jewell seconded. Motion carried. Roll call vote: Ellenbolt – Yes; Brunson – Yes; Jewell – Yes; Kraemer – Yes; Neuheisel – Yes; Schluter – Yes.


Brunson motioned to adjourn the meeting at 6:54 p.m. Kraemer seconded. Motion carried.
