Delaware County Supervisors Meeting Recap

Delaware County officials are preparing for work on phase two of the Quaker Mill Dam Project. On Monday, the County Board of Supervisors opened seven bids from companies competing for the work, with the bids ranging anywhere from about 716-thousand dollars up to one-point-five million dollars. The County will review the bids, with plans to award the bid at their next meeting on Tuesday.

Also this week, the Board of Supervisors approved Gary Reeder as a new Union Township Trustee. They had been down one trustee for several months.

The Supervisors also approved a quote from River City Paving for asphalt patches on various county roads. County Engineer Anthony Bardgett says there are a few rough spots that need “skip” patches, including Goose Hill Road, the intersection of Old 20 and Highway 38 and the approach on X-47 at 245th Street. The work will cost the County just under 30-thousand dollars.

And road and bridge projects continue in Delaware County. River City Paving has finished all the mainline paving on X-47 North, though work still needs to be done on granular shoulders, side road intersections and pavement markings. Schroeder Construction poured the bridge deck on the 245th Avenue Bridge Project last week – they’re working on bridge rails this week. And crews are re-grading the slopes and ditches on Turtle Creek Road. New pipes are also being installed where the road grade is being built up.
