Firms selected for Mahoning building

NEW CASTLE — Two Mercer County firms were selected for general contracting and construction of a new Mahoning Township office building.

When the Mahoning Township supervisors met Tuesday, they unanimously named low bidder Hudson Construction of Hermitage as general contractor. Hudson bid $946,890.

Other bids were: Salmon Construction, Grove City, $1,070,000; CBF Contracting, Sligo, Pa., $1,258,265; A.P. O’Horo Construction, Youngstown, $1,217,000; Milcam, Brookfield, Ohio, $1,272,000; and Fleeher Contracting of Cecil, Pa., $1,266,414.

The successful bidder for construction of the metal office building was Ferguson-Greenville Steel of Greenville at $330,162.

Other bidders were Jeemco, New Wilmington, $447,722; CBF Contracting, $438,516; Hudson Construction, $404,000; A.P. O’Horo Construction, $384,200; and Fleeher Contracting, $378,141.

Both bids were accepted pending review by the engineer and solicitor to make sure all requirements are met.

Supervisor Gary Pezzuolo noted the bids were close to expectations. He said the office building will be metal frame with a metal roof and a split face block exterior with a concrete foundation and floors.

The electric, heating, air conditioning and plumbing for the building will be advertised for bid next week, Pezzuolo said.

Supervisor Mark Sackin said the spring clean-up is behind schedule because of weather and because two road department employees are sick or injured. He asked residents to be patient and assured them crews will get to all the neighborhoods.
