Charlottetown City Hall
City council has approved close to $1.7 million in storm pipe construction this year.
The resolution to approve the contacts passed 9-0 (Coun. Danny Redmond was absent).
That kind of work has also been described in the past as ditch infilling.
Council awarded two contracts, both to Island Coastal Services Ltd., based on the fact they were the only submissions the city received.
The first contract amounts to $910,817.08 (14 per cent HST included).
Streets involved are Hillside Drive, Cedar Drive and MacWilliams Road.
The tender was advertised in The Guardian and on the city’s website. The work is expected to be completed no later than Oct. 11.
Island Coastal was also awarded a contract for $784,442.40 (14 per cent HST included).
Storm pipes will be placed on Windymere Drive, Braemore Avenue and Kirkdale Road.
Coun. Terry Bernard, chairman of the public works committee, says the work is part of an ongoing effort to provide the same level of service for all residents in the capital.
