P&W Wins Two Boro Bids

By Cassidy Pittman

McConnellsburg Borough Council accepted two bids from P&W Excavating at their monthly meeting last Wednesday evening – one for snow removal and one for roadwork. Council also opened bids for painting the Fulton House.

P&W won the bid for their use of a snow truck for $85 per hour and $110 per hour for their loader on an as-needed basis. P&W also won a bid that includes street work on First Street from the old medical center to Lincoln Way West and other work for $57,647.10. Only one other bid from New Enterprise Stone & Lime for $70,221.35 was made. The Fulton House paint bid went to Early’s Paint and Wall Covering for $10,800.

In other news, the council received a letter of request from the Grease, Steam, & Rust Association to close North and South First streets and East and West North streets for the Fall Folk Festival parade on Oct. 20. The council approved, but GS&R must maintain access to the Fulton County Medical Center in case of an emergency.

Council will publish a notice in The Fulton County News regarding the issue of tall grass and shrubbery blocking sidewalks.

During regular business, council approved payment of July bills totaling $7,885.85 and other payments amounting to $12,089.25. Revenue for the same period was $14,041.32, leaving an August 1 balance of $32,009.39.

Borough Council members present at last week’s meeting were President Rick Buterbaugh, Pat Booth, Adam Gress, Travis Bard, and secretary Jack Fields. Also present was Mayor Michael Chilcote.
