Bridgeville officials approve 2019 roadwork bid for nearly $121K


One month after rejecting bids that went over budget, Bridgeville Borough Council approved a trimmed 2019 road program.

Borough council approved a bid from Victor Paving & Construction for $120,825 for the project. Victor’s was the lowest of four bids. In the 2019 budget, borough council allocated $150,837, including engineering fees, for road paving. The lowest bid the borough received last month was $196,768. The project was trimmed by eliminating 1,200 feet of paving on Terrace Street. The bid was awarded unanimously, though council member Bruce Ghelarducci was absent from the meeting.

• Borough council also unanimously appointed the firm Lennon, Smith, Souleret Engineering to continue as borough engineers. Lennon, Smith, Souleret was appointed interim engineer when borough council terminated a contract with Gateway Engineers.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
