An agreement between the City of Sedalia and Septagon Construction Company was reached during Monday night’s Sedalia City Council meeting. The agreement and bid concerned the 3rd Street Sidewalk Improvement project.

The council approved a bid of $44,365 from Septagon Construction Company for the actual construction work on the 3rd Street Sidewalk Improvement project. This came in under the budgeted amount of $50,000 by $5,635.

During a previous city council meeting the Sedalia City Council approved the “fill” portion of the 3rd Street Sidewalk Improvement project. 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.

During the meeting, Sedalia City Council approved the annexation of an unincorporated area owned by Deer Brooks Villa. The property is adjacent and contiguous to the City of Sedalia’s existing corporate limits.

During the June 2 council meeting, the council a held a public hearing over the proposed annexation of property owned by Deer Brook Villas. During that meeting, no one from the community came forward to speak against the proposed annexation. The Deer Brooks Villas Phase II is located in the area of Mitchell Road.

Council also approved a bid and agreement in the amount of $52,837 from G & R Construction of Tipton, Mo., for the replacement of the Sedalia Community Center gymnasium roof. G & R Construction was the company that was contracted by the City of Sedalia to build the new fire station on West 16th Street.

The bid from G & R Construction was one of five bids submitted and their bid came in as the lowest bid received. The remaining bids went as high as $149,376

In other council news, the Sedalia City Council approved a records destruction request from the Sedalia Police Department Administrative Services Bureau.

“A lot of that are just duplicates or have been added to microfilm. We follow the guidelines set by the Secretary of State’s Office. It does have to go through the city council though,” said Sedalia Police Department Records Supervisor Susan Harrelson.
