The University Park City Council approved a bid from Cam-Crete Contracting for $285,200 for sidewalk repairs at the Dec. 3 meeting.
Purchasing Manager Elizabeth Anderson said the city has about 35,000 square feet of sidewalk that needs to be removed and replaced.
“This was the best-value bid,” Anderson said.
The council also approved replacing the EnerGov software used to facilitate planning, building permitting/inspections, and code enforcement with subscription-based software MyGov. The change will reportedly save $13,385 in the fiscal year 2020 operating budget and more than $20,000 for fiscal year 2021 and beyond.
