Members of the Fayette Village Council convened in a brief special session on the evening of April 9.
The primary purpose of the special session was the approval of the bid for two street projects…the TRW road widening project, and the village-wide street resurfacing project. Both projects were to be included in a single bid package. Council approved the bid of Henry W. Bergman, Inc. of Genoa, Ohio.
The Bergman bid of $392,937.80 was not only the lowest, it also came in below the estimates of the engineers. According to Village Administrator Steve Blue, both the village and the engineers have had positive experience with Bergman.
Council also hired Mark Merillat and Shane Myers as part-time, contingency employees for on-call services such as snow plowing and water main work.
