Approved an agreement for this year's fireworks on July 4th at Wilson Park as part of the City's Fun day. This is the third year of the return of the fireworks on the 4th sponsored by the city. Residents have been very appreciative of the holiday event being held back on this day. The agreement is not to exceed $50,000 with all the revenue coming from donations and not city tax dollars for the event.
Approved the final approval for Melissa L. Hamilton for a minor subdivision despite the objections of a neighbor Rachael Fields for a minor subdivision as 2435 I Street. One parcel will be smaller than required square footage for a residence. This required a variance which passed both the Bedford Board of Zoning Appeals and Bedford Plan Commission. Fields did not attend the Board of Works meeting
Approved the bid from Umphress Masonry Inc Bloomington, Indiana. for work at Bedford City Hall after they was the only bid that followed the complete bid specifications.
Bedford City Hall
The other bidder was McIntyre's who only bid for two sides of the building. There are two projects to be undertaken to improve city hall, which includes Brick and Tuck work, remove exterior paint, and replace the shutters. The Board of Works originally approved the lower bid of $87,000 however because they did not meet the specifications the Board reversed its decision and awarded the project in the amount of $170,000 submitted by the Bloomington company.
In the third phase of the project includes the installation of a door and this did not have to go through a bid process because the project was less than $50,000. Umphress Masonry Inc. was awarded the project for $8,200.
