The Randall Town Board approved bids totaling $564,001 for reconstructing 93rd Street and a new concrete pad at Randall Fire Department Station Number 1, which is on the street, at Thursday’s board meeting.

The 93rd Street was part of a large group of paving projects the town is undertaking over the next two years to rehabilitate town roads, with a total estimated cost of $3 million, which it is borrowing. By taking on the major program, the town is hoping to bring roads into a condition that will be less expensive to maintain in the long term, town Chairman Bob Stoll has said.

The 93rd Street work will be done by B.R. Amon & Sons or Elkhorn, the low bidder. It will extend from Highway P to the western boundary of the town.

“We have no reservations about the contract,” said Ken Ward, the town’s engineer.

If the  costs for the road reconstruction stay in line, the town will proceed with a replacement and enlarging of the concrete pad at the fire station. The larger concrete pad will allow the department’s trucks to be parked outside when needed without damaging the paving, which currently is in disrepair, Ward said. The fire station work was bid as a mandatory alternate bid.

Supervisor Rose Nolan was the only vote against the road spending.

“This is very costly,” Nolan said, “and I don’t think we can afford this at this time.”
