The City of Corner Brook awarded four tenders recently, including contracts for two retaining walls, an ice-resurfacing machine and a new sewer-vacuum truck.

The sewer-vacuum truck is the biggest ticket item and will be supplied by Joe Johnson, who had the lowest of two bids at $587,650. The city will either trade in its old vacuum truck or sell it off at auction to offset the cost of the new one.

The new ice-resurfacing machine for the city’s civic centre will be provided at a cost of $133,517 by Saunders Equipment Limited, which was the lone bidder.

Two different contractors were awarded contracts for the two retaining walls. Way’s Haulage and Excavation was the lowest of two bidders to construct a replacement wall at 38 Gibbons Ave. at an estimated cost of $52,699. The other wall, located at 10 McEacheran’s Ave., will be built by Cangro Services Ltd., the lowest of four bidders, at an estimated cost of $27,206.
