Bids

A. Approval of the bid from Fitzpatrick Construction for the replacement of windows in City Hall in an amount not to exceed $164,208.00.

 

Alderman Zurkammer made the motion to approve, Alderman Jones seconded.  Mayor Welch called for discussion, there being none, City Clerk Bateman called the roll. 

Alderman Bateman noticed after last week’s meeting that there were 8 windows crossed out in the bid packet. These windows were not included in the original bid packet because they were only 8 years old.  Alderman Bateman felt that the correct way to complete this project would be to replace all the windows at the same time so that they match and have the same warranty. 

Alderman Bateman amended this item to include the additional 8 windows bring the base bid to $210,518.00.  Alderwoman Rohlfs seconded. 

City Clerk Bateman called roll on the amendment.
