Shipshewana, IN  46565


PRESENT:  Council; Elmer J. Mast, C. Arlene Lazzaro.  Staff:  Robert W. Shanahan, Casey Erwin, Todd Thurber, Charity Elliott, Ruth Ann Downey.  Public; Sam Byler and Robert Dahn.


Council President E. Mast noted that a quorum of the Council was not present so no official meeting can be held.  Town Manager B. Shanahan reported that the purpose of the meeting is to open bids and take them under advisement for the SR 5/Farver Street Lane Improvement Project.  We have received two bids.


Casey Erwin of DLZ opened and read the bids as follows:  Rieth-Riley Construction Company of South Bend, IN  has a total bid of $697,906.30.  API Construction Corp. of Laotto, IN has a total bid of $827,069.50.  This concludes the opening and reading of the bids.  We appreciate the bids that have been submitted, now the bids will be taken under advisement to allow time for review and a recommendation will be brought back to the July 12, 2018 Town Council meeting.  Discussion followed.

It was noted that both bids came in under the Engineer’s Estimate of $910,000.00.
