Wilmington OKs new roof, street paving

NEW CASTLE — New Wilmington Borough will replace the municipal building roof and pave three streets this summer.

Council awarded a $42,312 contract for the roof job to CBF Contracting of Sligo, Pa. CBF was the third-lowest bidder, but was the lowest bidder that met all requirements, according to Larry Wagner, council president.

Two lower bids were eliminated because they did not meet bid requirements.

Other bidders that met requirements were SRI Roofing of New Castle, with a bid of $49,957, and Jeemco of New Wilmington, which bid $56,262.

Fred Garrett, borough superintendent, said the roof needs to be replaced because of deteriorating shingles. He estimated it was last replaced in 1995. Work is scheduled to begin June 24, weather permitting, according to Sharonn Edmiston, council administrator/treasurer.

Council also awarded the summer street paving contract to low bidder Sharon Paving and Construction Inc. of Sharpsville. Council chose to go with the alternate bid of $118,823 which means the company will provide materials as well as labor.

Other bidders and their alternate bids were Butch & McCree Paving Inc., Hillsville, $121,949; Glen O. Hawbaker Paving, Grove City, $139,685; Protek Maintenance Inc., New Castle, $128,858; and Youngblood Paving Inc., Wampum, $122,874.

Garrett said the three streets to be paved are Waugh Avenue, from Lincoln to the end of Waugh Circle; Haw Street, from the municipal building to Short Street and a small curb on Short Street; and Wood Street, from Lincoln to High Street.

He explained these three streets are the only ones that will be paved this summer and were chosen because they are in bad shape because of construction and other issues. Work will begin after July 15.
