La Salle staying local with wastewater plant bid

Posted by wlpo on December 29, 2009

Normally when a city bids out a project, they open it up to anyone interested.  But that’s not how the La Salle City Council has chosen to bid out a job involving the wastewater treatment plant.

          The city council decided Monday night to limit bidding between local companies J.B. Contracting and Machinery Maintenance. 

          Before voting on it, alderman George Green said they had great work done by them in the past.

          Mayor Jeff Grove said it shows they’re dedicated to supporting the local workforce.

          The project is being paid for using federal Recovery Zone Bonds.  The city has up to $698,000.  The federal government will reimburse the city for up to 45% of the interest.
