Trustee Noone explained to the Board that there were four bidders for the road construction job for Inness Place.  The Engineer contracted to oversee the project, Jim Antonelli, went over all the bids for accuracy.  “I have analyzed the bids which were opened at Village Hall on May 24, 2017.  Four bids were received…I have checked the bids, references and the contactors’ experience with similar projects and I find that the apparent low bidder is qualified.  I recommend that the bid be awarded to United Paving of Mill Neck, NY for the amount of $106,945.00.”  Trustee Noone also explained to the Board that this project will be funded from the CHIPS money.  The measure was approved,  a motion to approve United paving as contractor for Inness Place improvement made by Trustee Noone, seconded by Mayor DeMento and confirmed by all.
