Toccoa City Commission Awards Bids For 2 SPLOST Projects

The Toccoa City Commission approves bids for two separate SPLOST projects.

On Monday, city commissioners unanimously approved bids for both the renovation of the engine room at the Doyle Street fire station and resurfacing of a number of city streets.

The city commission awarded the renovation of the Fire Department Engine Room to Ivester Construction of Eastanollee in the amount of $6,536.36. It was the lowest of two bids submitted, with the other bid coming from Andrews Construction of Toccoa in the amount of $7,800.

That project involves thoroughly cleaning the ceilings and walls, patching cracks and holes in the walls, and painting the room.

There is not a specific date for the project to start, but the request for bids from the city states that work must be complete with 30 days of notification of bid award.

Meanwhile, city commissioners awarded the road re-surfacing project to CW Matthews Contracting of Marietta at a cost of $230,665.47. It was the lowest of three bids submitted for the project, with the other bids coming from Allied Paving of Pendergrass and Reeves Construction at costs of $239,513.50 and $272,960.50 respectively.

This project involves re-surfacing parts of seven city streets. They include Sautee Street between Diagonal and Hill streets, Julia Lane from Rothell Road to Julia Court, the length of Julia Court, Pine Valley Drive, Scenic Drive from Rock Quarry Extension to Prather Bridge Road, Old Riley Street from Savannah to Craig streets, and Branch Street.

Money for both projects will come out of SPLOST V.
