The Ripley Village Council opened three sealed bids on a rural water main project for new wells to the water plant at its recent meeting.
The village received three bids for the project and accepted a bid of $217,250 from Unger Construction, LTD in West Union. Other bids were considered including a bid of $276,265 from Hartman and Smith Construction Company in Amelia and a bid of $306,570 from Rose Excavating and Development, Inc., of New Richmond.
According to a letter to council from J.D. Stine, P.E. & Associates, Inc., Ripley’s consulting engineers, J.D. Stine recommended that the contract be awarded to Unger Construction. The letter from Stine also stated that the OWDA (Ohio Water Development Authority) had been advised of the bid results and have indicated that the village may award the contract.
