Brownton shelves additional street work for time being

Higher-than-expected bids for additional street work in Brownton left city council members feeling as if there was only one option – reject the bids and wait for a better time to revisit the proposal.
On Tuesday, June 4, the Brownton City Council voted 4-0 to reject the bids for street-improvement work.
The proposal was to improve a section of First Avenue South, from the dump to the city limits; a section of North Ninth Avenue, North First Avenue, and a section of Fourth Street South. The proposal was intended to complement existing street work in Brownton and take advantage of companies looking for a small job at the end of the summer. But the project didn’t draw the number of potential interested firms the city hoped when it sent the project out for bids earlier this spring. Only three companies submitted bids, and all three were well over the engineer’s estimate of $275,930.
