Mr. Smith stated a revised resolution was provided to all Committee members due to the bid openings being held on May 8, 2017. The bid was awarded to Niagara Coating Services, Inc., for the painting of the Salmon Creek Road bridge over Salmon Creek. This company’s bid came in significantly lower than the other four bids received and following contact with references they are being recommended for this bridge painting project.

The bridge is being painted red instead of green as the original color of the bridge was red and it was a request from the Town of Lansing.
