FD council to consider infrastructure work

Corridor Plaza application for state assistance also on agenda

A handful of infrastructure contracts are on the agenda for the Fort Dodge City Council tonight.

The council will also consider an application for $18 million in state assistance for the development of a pavilion and plaza at Corridor Plaza.

The council’s work will begin at 5 p.m. today with a workshop on health insurance.

The council’s regular business meeting will begin at 6 p.m.

During that session, the council will consider awarding a contract for the annual street repaving project. Fort Dodge Asphalt Co. has submitted the only bid of about $908,000.

Among the streets planned for repaving this year are 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th streets between Central Avenue and Second Avenue North. Also, Central Avenue between Third Street and the Canadian National Railway tracks is slated for a fresh coat of asphalt.

The council will also consider awarding a contract for a new storm sewer between First and Second streets northwest. Nels Pederson Co. Inc., of Badger, submitted the apparent low bid of about $327,000 for the work.

A contract for a unique street resurfacing job on Country Club Drive will also be considered. The existing street surface will be pulverized and fresh asphalt will be placed on top of it. Fort Dodge Asphalt has submitted the only bid of about $446,000 for the work.

Lastly, the council will consider awarding a contract for building a larger storm sewer from Second Avenue South and 12th Street to the Des Moines River. S. M. Hentges & Sons of Jordan, Minnesota, submitted the apparent low bid at about $1.4 million.
