Council Awards Ice Rink Contract

Bradford City Council on Tuesday awarded the $1.8 million contract for renovations to the Callahan Park ice rink to Kessel Construction.

Councilman Brad Mangel said he is glad the contract went to a local company.

The project will paid for with $500,000 in grant money and through the refinancing of a general obligation bond, which council also approved last night. City Clerk John Peterson explained that $1.8 million for the renovation was included in this year’s city budget.

Maybe one of these years could we include paving the roads in the city taxes...glad 90% of people in this town don't use the ice rink but we have to pay to fix it..let's fix the roads because I'm tired of having to look like I'm a drunk driver so I don't fall into a hole.

The money from the bond will also go toward road resurfacing projects.

Thank god. I see these guys trying to fill holes with blacktop in 20 degree weather and it sticks for 2 days then the holes back. Seriously some of these holes will break your car. My aunt came up from Georgia and just parked her car on e main street and laughed trying to figure out how to get around all of the holes. I'm suprised more people don't get bent rims or flat tires.
