Melanie Lekocevic is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media a second call for proposals has resulted in lower bids for the town of Greenville's proposed water and sewer extension project, town Supervisor Paul Macko said recently. “We opened the second round of bidding for the water and sewer upgrades. We have five bids,” he said. The project would extend the water and sewer lines, replace a water tank and make other upgrades to the system. The first round, opened June 15, were higher than expected, leaving the town a little less than $2 million short to pay for the project. The town board revised the project parameters and put it out to bid again. Macko would only say the proposals received this time around were less than the bids received during the first round, but did not provide specifics. “Give or take, it looks like we will need nearly $94,000 more to complete the sewer and we will need just under $328,000 to complete the water,” he said. Macko said he should have finalized numbers for the town board's next meeting on August 16. Read the full story at HudsonValley360 [dot] com.
