Commissioners OK paving work

The Warren County Commissioners approved a bid for a paving project in Clarendon on Wednesday morning.

The Terrace Haven and School Street paving project was awarded to Russell Standard of Oil City for $89,975.63. Russell Standard was the lowest of four bids for the project.

County Fiscal Director Paul Pascuzzi had previously noted the cost of the project was estimated at over $100,000 back in 2010, by E and M Engineers. The estimate was completed to allow for budgeting for the project.

“Oh, it won’t take long, a couple of days to prep, and a couple more to finish,” Thomas Warner of Russell Standard previously told the commissioners.

The commissioners also approved an agreement with Archival Solutions to shred three bins of documents at the courthouse for $43.85.

“Anything that can be shredded, rather than have our employees stand there and shred, Pirello will provide a bin,” Commissioner Chairman Stephen Vanco said.

Also during the commissioners meeting, 30 contracts for Children and Youth Services providers were approved.

“This is annual work this time of year that we do,” Commissioner John Bortz said.

“These contracts specify conditions under which we will use these people, they don’t necessarily guarantee any amount of money except for a couple of professional services which are basically retainers…most of these are if we use your service, we agree to pay ‘x’ amount of dollars for that service for ‘x’ amount of dollars per day,” Commissioner John Eggleston said.

Under old business, the commissioners agreed to withdraw the acceptance of a winning bid of $1,250 for a 2005 Chevrolet Impala by Ron Forbes.
