One Bid For Clyde’s Way Repaving Project

Gerken Paving, Napoleon, was the lone bidder for the repaving of Clyde’s Way.

Archbold Village Council approved the firm’s bid of $277,748 to repave the road from the West Barre Road intersection to the East Lutz Road-Co. Rd. 22-Co. Rd. D intersection during the Monday, Sept. 8 council meeting.

Bob Seaman, village engineer, explained the overall project will take about two weeks.

Also, council agreed to purchase a 2015 Ford F- 250 four-wheel-drive pickup from Rich Ford for $22,798.

The vehicle will be assigned to the Parks & Recreation Department. It will be equipped with a snowplow to assist the street department during snow emergencies.

Howell said the snowplow requires a heavier-duty pickup than a Ford F-150 model.

Dennis Howell, village administrator, said during budget talks it was decided to allow Jennifer Kidder, Parks & Recreation director, to look for a used pickup with less than 50,000 miles.

However, prices for used pickups “are out of sight,” Howell said. A new pickup truck proved to be a better value.

Two other firms submitted bids for a pickup. Terry Henricks Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep- Ram offered a 2015 2500 Ram pickup for $24,899, $2,101 more than the Ford.

Christy Motor Sales offered a 2015 Chevrolet for $26,017, $3,219 more than the winning bid.
