Yorkton Council has approved a tender for the City’s Pathway Development Program for 2019/2020.
“In the 2018 capital budget, approval was given for a new outdoor skating rink at the Ukrainian Pioneer Park. Also, the 2019/2020 capital budget made provision for existing gravel pathways at the Knights of Columbus and Silver Heights Parks to be upgraded to pavement. All three of these projects were bundled together and tendered as the Pathway Development Program 2019/2020,” René Richard, Director of Engineering & Asset Management, with the City told the regular meeting of Yorkton Council Monday.
The tender for the Pathway Development Program 2019/2020 was posted on SaskTenders and the City’s website for 21 days.
Two bids were received.
“A tender evaluation committee was assembled to evaluate the bids. This committee was comprised of representatives from the Engineering Department. It was determined that the bid from Fedorowich Construction Ltd. provides the best value, as well as low bid, in this instance. This bid was within specifications and was within budget estimates,” said Richard.
It was the recommendation of City administration that the tender be awarded to Fedorowich Construction, which was unanimously supported by Council.
