Utica approves bid for concession stand

Jeff Dankert
NewsTribune Reporter

Utica village board awarded a construction bid Wednesday for a new restroom and concession stand at Neighbors Park.

Pinter Construction, Spring Valley was awarded the project with a bid of $74,098, the lowest among six bids submitted. Construction should begin in a few weeks, engineer Kevin Heitz said.

The restroom and concession will serve visitors to the baseball diamond in the park on Clark’s Hill.

Other business:
* The board approved replacing a culvert that serves the Senica Manor residential area. Roughly 150 feet of 36-inch culvert will be replaced at a cost not to exceed $60,000. This culvert was damaged during heavy storm water runoff in April and is on the village’s wish list for federal flood damage aid.

* The following board officials who were elected April 9 took oaths of offices: Mayor Fred Esmond, City Clerk City Laurie Gbur, and trustees Joe Bernardoni, Gloria Alvarado and Kevin “Chops” Stewart.

* The board observed a moment of silence for trustee, Shelba Bimm.
