Bids Opened for Ice Rink Renovation

Bids were opened during Tuesday’s Bradford City Council for the Callahan Park Ice Rink renovation project. They ranged from $1.8 million to $2.1 million. The project engineer is looking over the bids and council expects to award the contract during its next meeting.

Council also authorized the advertisement of bids for the Pine Street Parking Lot Improvement Project, and approved the placement of additional temporary directional signs for the Holiday Inn Express. The signs must be approved by DPW Director Chip Comilla.

Also, a Rockland Avenue couple who rent several properties in the city expressed their displeasure with the NewBury Commons housing project, saying “it’s a constant struggle” to find good tenants and there are “only so many decent people to rent to.” They feel that approving the project “literally takes food off our table.”

Council observed a moment of silence for former councilman Frederick Proper, who died earlier this month. Mayor Tom Riel also read a certificate of appreciation honoring Proper, and presented it to his son, current councilman Fred Proper.
