          Mr. Thomas asked Mr. Daniels if he is abstaining this. Mr. Daniels said yes. Mr. Russell said he is allowed to suspend the rules.

 

 

 

          Mr. Crider said that they went into discussion about the problems over on Milburn St. Engineer Lively spoke: We have been in contact with Helms and put together a punch list and also put together a memorandum detailing the items that were needed to be done to complete the project. That memo has been signed by the City and by Helms. Mr. Thomas asked if you feel comfortable with Helms. Engineer Lively said he is not concerned about the work on Milburn not being completed.

 

 

 

          Mr. Thomas said we now have 7 to suspend the rules. Wishes of Council Mr. Crider. Mr. Crider said I’ll move to amend it by changing Park Enterprises to Helms and Sons at a price of 1,225,282.02. Mrs. Blevins 2nd.  Mr. Russell wanted to make sure that the second paragraph would say “the lowest and best bid” under the 2nd WHEREAS.

 

 

 

          Sulu Kelley, 365 E. Farming - have you put safeguards in place to have this prevented in the future. Engineer Lively said we are going to have a part-time project engineer along with the inspector, hopefully to ward off any problems before they get paved over.
