NORWICH – The Common Council of the City of Norwich met Tuesday night and rapidly worked through the items on the agenda. Two bids were awarded, concerns were addressed and the council discussed procedures for the condemnation of properties.
Burrel Excavating was awarded a $281,200 bid for the reconstruction of Eaton Avenue, and Kilts Enterprises in Brookfield was awarded a bid of $20,400 for 2007 tree removal. The council agreed to put stipulations into the agreement, calling for work to be done within a certain time frame. If the work is not completed in that time, Kilts will not be invited to bid on future projects.
The council approved the bids and continued with other business. Sixth Ward Alderman Robert Jeffrey expressed one of his concerns while giving his ward report. “In the railroad right of way, the high grass is a concern,” Jeffrey said, asking Code Enforcement Officer Jason Lawrence what could be done about it.
