Maryville City Council approved expenditures of $368,066 on street overlays and repairs July 11.
The following streets will receive a new overlay: South Davis, South Saunders and Galaxie Drive. Keller Construction, St. Joseph, was awarded the contract not to exceed $99,000. Also approved was a bid from Keller to place a two-inch overlay on a one-mile stretch on North Main from 242nd Street to the Maryville city limits near the Highway 71 bypass. This project is not to exceed $230,166.25. It is contingent upon MoDOT approval.
Kyle Phillips, Herzog Contracting Corp. vice president of civil construction, St. Joseph, addressed the council with concerns about the bid process. He felt the city staff did not provide enough details in the bid package to make accurate bid calculations.
Phillips gave an example of material calculation for a street overlay. If one company calculated materials to the beginning of an intersection and the second company calculated the materials to the end of the intersection, the bids would vary. It was noted that Herzog did not attend the pre-bid meeting where city staff could have answered questions. City Manager Greg McDanel stated he would meet with Herzog officials to discuss their suggestions.
The original bid for striping Main Street came in over budget. An alternative bid to strip South Avenue came in under budget and was awarded to Twin Traffic Marking Corp., Kansas City, not to exceed $12,600. The Main Street striping will be budgeted for the 2017 year.
Only one company bid for the Water Treatment Plant roof repairs. Jason Brown Roofing, LLC, Maryville, was awarded the bid not to exceed $26,300. The repairs will fix three leaks.
A leasehold mortgage deed of trust with Boulders Inn, Maryville, for benefit of Wells Bank, the lending bank, was approved. This allows Boulders Inn to move forward with securing financing.
The council heard bids from Nodaway Valley Bank, Citizens Bank and Wells Bank for the city’s banking services. Bids will be analyzed and recommendations presented to the council at the next meeting. Bank Midwest and US Bank declined to bid.
East First Street received repairs after a water leak caused pavement heaving. Two new valves were installed to allow better isolation in the future. Keller Construction performed emergency repairs July 6 through July 8. Repair costs were submitted to Missouri Intergovernmental Risk Management Association (MIRMA) for insurance reimbursement.
The council approved a lot split for a South Hills Estates property owned by Mark Burnsides, Maryville. The split will create two buildable lots.
