Batavia Township awards paving contract

During the Batavia Township meeting Tuesday, July 7, administrator Rex Parsons opened the bids for the 2009 paving project. Parsons received six bids from local companies ranging in price from $139,057 – $254,708. Service director Ken Embry was asked to review the bids during the meeting and make a recommendation to the board before the close of the meeting.

“The Schumacher Paving bid matched exactly what we put out for bid,” said Embry. “It is my recommendation that the board award the 2009 paving contract to Schumacher with their bid of $139,057.60.”

Each bid received by the township offered the same quality work with the same specifications. The board approved the bid from Schumacher Dugan Construction, of West Chester, as the lowest and best bidder.
