Four bids were received by the Plymouth City Council Monday night for the Richter Road water main extension project.
The lowest bid was submitted by Haskins Underground, Inc. in Plymouth in the amount of $124,605. The highest bid was $257,812 from out of South Bend. The council voted unanimously to take the bids under advisement. They will be reviewed by City Attorney Sean Surrisi, City Engineer Rick Gaul and Utility Superintendent Donnie Davidson. A recommendation will be brought before the city council during their next meeting on July 24.
The water main extension project will improve fire protection and water quality. The plans call for better connectivity by looping the water connections from Baker Street down to Richter Road and then reconnecting at Jefferson and Warana.
