Bid for Worthing Safe Routes to School project comes in $65,000 over estimate

Worthing City Commissioners met on Thursday, July 11. In the absence of Mayor Eric Saugstad, Commissioner Board President Darren VanHouten opened the meeting.
City Engineer Jon Fischer, of Stockwell Engineers, spoke to the Commissioners during the open speaking portion of the meeting. He explained that the Safe Routes to School Phase 1 bid opening was held by the DOT (Department of Transportation). There was one bidder, Carstensen Conracting Inc of Pipestone, who bid $203,625; that amount was $65,000 over the estimated cost of the project. Fischer recommended that the city reject the bid. He said that was the State’s recommendation as well.
