The Sedalia City Council met for a brief session this past Monday evening, where they approved several bids and quotes for various city projects and departments. The council approved a bid for the destruction of buildings located at 202-206 S. Ohio during the meeting.

The council approved a bid in the amount of $114,755 from Midland Wrecking, Inc. of Lenexa, Kansas for the demolition of structures located at 202-206 S. Ohio. The buildings were damaged when a building adjacent caught on fire. According to Midland Wrecking Project Manager Steve Tripp, demolition is slated to begin on Friday morning, May 23.

“We are going to try to start wrecking it on Friday. We hope to have it on the ground by Saturday evening,” Tripp said of the demolition.

The council also approved a bid in the amount of $14,780.48 from Vulcan Signs for materials to be used by the Sedalia Street Department. The materials will be used in the sign shop and they are necessary to be in compliance with federal/state reflectivity mandates.

Sedalia City Council approved a bid for engineered grade fill related to 3rd St. improvements between Ohio and Lamine. The bid was also for fill work to be done in front of Classic Jewelry. It was decided that the sidewalk on the block must be replaced and the fill work must be completed first. The approved bid was in the amount of $11,700 and was submitted by Foundation Recovery Systems. The bid was for fill work only.

A bid for a zero turn mower and bagger system, to be used at Crown Hill Cemetery, was approved in the amount of $4,491from Otten Small Engine.

The council approved a quote from Baker Equipment for the purchase of a camera with a track crawler to be used by the WPC on the department’s camera truck. This allows the WPC to have a standby camera to use during down time, and the track crawler will be able to be used in sewer lines where other cameras cannot reach.

The quote came in at $24,450 and it came in under the $25,000 budgeted amount. The camera equipment is used daily by the WPC Department.

Council approved a quote from Bryant Motor Company in the amount of $23,682 for the purchase of a 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 4×4 Crew Cab half-ton pickup to be used by the Sedalia Street Department.

The purchase is made through the MoDOT Cooperative Procurement Program. The purchase amount came in under the budgeted amount of $28,000.

The council also approved quotes for the purchase of two same make and model trucks to be used by both the WPC Department and the Sedalia Sanitation Department. The purchase amount for each vehicle came in at $23,682. Bryant Motor Company will provide all three vehicles.

The council approved and accepted Amendment #1 to Exhibit Q to the master agreement for professional services between the City of Sedalia and Ollson Associates.

This is related to engineering services related to the $30 million sewer project currently underway. The city will pay Ollsons Associates $76,888 for services. These costs were already accounted for in the project budget. Photos by Randy Kirby, Sedalia Weekly Observer.
