A contract for the 207th grade separation construction project with BG Consultants passed was approved at the Edgerton City Council’s Feb. 25 meeting.
Dan Merkh, public works director, said the original contract with Pyramid Contractors had changed.
He said BG Consultants offered a lower cost at $330,547.92.
Merkh said they saved money through not needing complete inspection of construction materials. “Once the material is applied and cured you don’t have to sit and watch it,” he said.
Roberts said the full-time inspections are critical, constructed the way the city wants and lasts.
Renewal of the City’s Corporate Insurance Policy with Travellers Insurance for the new year April 1 through March 31, 2022 was approved.
The 7th Street and Nelson Sanitary Sewer project with Trekk Design for $518,000 passed.  The project is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
Merkh gave an update on winter weather operations.
“It was the first time we had faced this type of weather,” he said. “The shear cold was very difficult.” Merkh said the extreme cold and days below freezing diminished the effectiveness of the road salt, but they were fortunate with the snow not being heavy
