Demolition contract, curb cutting program on council's radar Monday
HUNTINGTON -- Huntington City Council will be dealing primarily with infrastructure and property issues during its regular meeting Monday, which will follow a lighter agenda than in previous weeks.
The council is expected to approve a contract for demolition and site clearance for the fiscal year, along with an asbestos abatement contract.
The city will likely retain R&B Tassen Construction Inc., out of Huntington, for its demolition needs in the coming year.
The council is also expected to give the green light to furnish funds and materials for the sidewalks and curb cutting project, and a culvert replacement project on Nickel Plate Road.
Hager Construction of Huntington was the low bidder for both projects, at $129,000 for the sidewalks project, and $81,900 for culvert replacement.
The council did not have its regular work session Thursday, and will instead conduct that session at 6:30 p.m., an hour before Monday's council meeting, in council chambers.
It's a 12-item agenda for the council, almost half of the 23-item agenda the council went through at its last regular meeting, which included second readings of four changes to the city charter, which will be placed on the ballot in November's general election for Huntington residents to decide.
