Upper Tyrone supervisors hope to have some new restroom facilities soon at the township municipal building.

The five bids received for the project were opened and read aloud this week.

With a bid of $15,130, Roger Suter & Sons of Connellsville submitted the lowest. Vince Building Co. of Greensburg was next with a $15,300 bid.

Supervisors voted to refer the bids to Widmer Engineering to make sure the compliance responsibilities required by the state Department of Community and Economic Development grant obtained for the project were met.

Once supervisors receive a recommendation from Widmer, they will advertise a special meeting with intent to award the bid.

In other business:

• Supervisor Bill Edwards said the township is down one auditor, and no letters of interest have been received.

• Motions passed included hosting the March 11 Fayette County Association of Township Officials monthly meeting; renewing the Sam's Club membership; entering into a salt participation agreement for road salt with the state's Department of General Services for the 2013-14 winter season; and purchasing a new computer for supervisors' use in the amount not to exceed $1,000, which has been budgeted.

• Rescinded a motion made in January that appointed Morris Knowles and Associates as primary sewage enforcement officer and Robert Killinger as secondary officer.

A new motion was made to appoint K2 Engineering as primary sewage enforcement officer and Morris Knowles as secondary sewage enforcement officer.
