|Prince Rupert's 2021 Paving project is set to be awarded
tonight, with Prince Rupert's Adventure Paving set to lay the
blacktop for the summer paving season
Tonight's Prince Rupert City Council session will signal the start of the 2021 paving program, with Council members to review a report and recommendation from Operations Director Richard Pucci who will outline the results of the City's recent call for tenders for the work.
In his report to Council, the Operations Director notes that the City received only one compliant bid for the work for 2021, with a recommendation to award the work to Adventure Paving with the cost for the roadwork ahead to come to 863,682.44 plus taxes.
The recommendation may be welcomed by City Councillor Barry Cunningham who had offered up a range of concerns over last years awarding of the paving contract to an out of town competitor, a topic that has re-appeared from time to time at Council sessions since that work was completed in the fall of 2020.
We outlined some of the concerns over last year's paving work, as well as to list the areas to be paved for 2021 with this blog item of May 13th.
