CENTERBURG — At a meeting Monday evening, Centerburg Village Council accepted Kokosing Construction Company's bid for 2021 improvements to South Hartford Avenue.

Kokosing's $84,563.40 bid comes in under the engineer's estimate of $107,800. Law General Contracting and Small's General Contracting also submitted bids.

The $125,000 project includes asphalt milling, asphalt installation, partial base removal and replacement, and berm grading from Dally Street to White Road. Funding comes from an $89,062 Ohio Public Works Commission grant, a $29,688 loan and a local cost-share of $6,250.

The project has a completion date of Aug. 31. Village Administrator Joe Hardin anticipates construction to begin in May.

Council gave a second reading to a resolution declaring the necessity for renewing the village's 3.0-mill levy and approved paying Park Enterprises $3,600 for additional asphalt used on the North Ewing Street paving project.

Council members tabled ordinances relating to acquiring property, casualty, and general liability insurance for the village and vacating Spring Alley east of South Clayton St. Council went into executive session to discuss the Whistle Stop Properties pre-annexation agreement with no action taken.
