Lanesboro discusses bids


Fri, Jul 9th, 2010
Posted in Government

The Lanesboro City Council approved the purchase of a new copy machine for the city offices at their meeting on July 6. City Administrator Bobbie Vickerman said they have been having some problems with their current machine keeping up, as well as problems with the company they are leasing it from. She presented the council with a bid from A+ Imagine Systems. She recommended they go with the 48-month lease, which will not cost much more than they are already paying.

This price will include the $1,200 to buy out the current machine. Vickerman said the library can use this machine, as it will fit their needs much better, and they are in need of a different one. This new upgrade will be sufficient to keep up with the large volume of copies the city office makes, including bills.

The Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce has been doing business with A+ Imaging Systems and has been very happy with their service. Vickerman said when they have a problem, there is a guarantee that someone will come help in 0-4 hours.

Street Lights

Vickerman gave an updated estimate on the cost of replacing street lights in town. The current price is $3,750 per light, which includes the pole and the light fixture. This makes the total estimated cost around $200,000. There was some discussion about having fewer lights and still being able to have enough light in the areas for it to be safe.

Sidewalk Bids

At the last meeting, the council had received three different bids for sidewalks that were difficult to compare. Vickerman met with Andy Drake and the three contractors and came up with three bids that were more similar. Each company submitted bids for four-inch sidewalk, six-inch sidewalk, and handicap curbs. The city will be helping with hauling, tearing out the handicap curbs, and will provide dirt and seed. All three of the bids submitted were very close.

Vickerman said Bakke Construction had done sidewalks in Lanesboro before. Norse Valley Construction had done some construction business in town as well. The council approved hiring Norse Construction for the sidewalks.

Other Business

The council approved the closure of Beacon Street for Stone Mill's 10th Anniversary on July 13 from 3-7 p.m. They also approved the closing of Coffee Street for the Fireman's Dance during Buffalo Bill Days.
