For the Monday morning Work session and Tuesday evening voting Regular Session,
the Lowndes County Commission has
only one item that has “BUDGET IMPACT” in its agenda sheet, but it’s a doozy:
The agenda sheet says:
Lowndes County solicited bids for Ridgecrest, Woodland and Glenview
Grading, Drainage, Base and Paving. The project will consist of
Grading, Drainage, Base and Paving of Ridgecrest and Woodland and
the installation of a box culvert under Glenview Drive. Vendors
present for the pre-bid meeting held on July 21, 2020, were James
Warren & Associates, Southland Contractors, Reames & Son
Construction, Rountree Construction, and The Scruggs Company. Three
bids were received on August 4, 2020.
Here are the bids:
Bids, NC-TIA 2019-04: Ridgecrest Street and Woodland Drive
Where is that?
South of the west end of W Savanna Ave, near I-75 Exit 16.
Ridgecrest Street & Woodland Drive
Ah, yes, I got stuck in traffic there not so long ago,
trying to get around a stopped train.
We know this much because LAKE obtained a copy of the board packet
through an open records request; it’s
on the LAKE website.
I suppose if we rummage around enough we’ll find details of
NC-TIA 2019-04 somewhere on the county’s website.
