Without quorum, Craig City Council postpones decision on city custodial services
CRAIG — Several seats were empty at the front of council chambers during the Craig City Council’s regular meeting Tuesday, May 22. Three council members were absent, leading to one postponed decision.
Council was slated to award a bid for cleaning services at City Hall and the Center of Craig, after the city’s current contractor announced plans to retire.
However, Councilman Tony Bohrer declared a conflict of interest in the decision, and with council members Joe Bird, Jerrod Ogden and Chris Nichols absent, council no longer had a quorum.
Discussion on the matter was tabled until the next City Council meeting, slated for June 12.
The Craig City Council also took the following actions during Tuesday’s meeting.
• Approved a local historic designation for the Luttrell Barn.
• Approved an amended site plan that will allow an expansion to Craig Powersports.
• Awarded two bids for services related to the waterline project. A bid for materials was awarded to Core and Main for $81,397.93. A bid for installation of the main was awarded to Anson Excavating and Pipe for $397,372.
• Awarded bids for three curb and gutter repair projects around the city. Bids for two of the projects were awarded to Steamboat Asphalt in the amounts of $112,850 and $29,250. The remaining bid was awarded to Giovanni Construction for $246,791.60.
• Heard monthly reports from the Water/Wastewater Departments and the Financial Department.
