Basehor enters into contract with Donelson
The Basehor city council voted at its Monday meeting to enter into a contract with Donelson Construction, LLC, for the remainder of its 2013 pavement management project.
The contract proposal was discussed at length at the council’s work session earlier this month. Donelson had submitted the proposal with a contract price of $3.28 per square yard — a slight decrease from the chip and seal program used in 2012 ($3.32).
The proposal passed, 3-0. Sections of 158th Street and Parallel Road still need to be resurfaced in 2013. The city has already resurfaced 142nd Street from Parallel to north of U.S. Highway 24-40.
In other business, the council:
• Voted, 3-0, to amend city ordinance 585, which covers appointment of city officers, duties and compensation and removal.
• Voted, 3-0, to appoint four returning members and one new member to the city’s board of zoning appeals.
• Voted, 3-0, to award a contract to Miles Excavating for the Wolf Creek Parkway extension project. The city began taking bids on Aug. 15, and Miles’ bid of $1,922,433.17 beat out five other candidates. The estimated cost of the project, which will require work at intersections at 155th and 158th streets, was $2.5 million.
• Heard an update of the city’s building permits for 2013. As of Monday’s meeting, there were 44 single-family and five multi-family permits, surpassing last year’s overall total of 43. Police chief and interim city administrator Lloyd Martley said the city could have 60 permits by the end of the year.
There was no executive session and no comments from the public. Council members Vernon Fields and Ty Garver were absent from the meeting.
