Suppose your city wants to repave a street, but no company bids on the project.
That problem is faced by the Le Mars City Council after no bids were submitted for the overlaying of Business Highway 75.
The city council had wanted the project to be started by the start of autumn, but no contractors submitted bids for the estimated $1.6 million project.
City Administrator Scott Langel says some contractors showed interest, but most are already committed to other projects:
OC………..specialized probably. :19
Langel says contractors may try to bid on the project if offered at a different time of year and some were concerned that the project may not be completed before frost sets in:
OC………..better suited. ;17
Langel says he will come back to the city council later in the year or early next year to have the project rebid.
