CHESTER – Chester Mayor Robert Poynter welcomed GLS engineers Nicholas Hoelscher and Pat Oats at their regular council meeting, Monday, August 7.

Work on one road was in process, and Hoelscher and Oats updated the council on work on two other road projects.  Seems they need to resubmit for more bids from the Community Development Block Grant budget. This time, as Oats explained the law, the council will announce for a fifteen-day timeframe, the minimum allowed by law.

Oats anticipated more bids and explained that it was possible the current contactor could submit a lower bid, giving that the contractor will not have to add equipment moving to the cost, if the bidding was expedited.

Chester signed up with Paradigm to do their public awareness notifications on all gas and safety issues as required by law, the citizens will receive that information soon.

Director of Public works Ivan Coronado gave an update on his training from Dale Clamon, and the city was pleased with his work and looking forward to sponsoring more training in the weeks to come.
