JJW101 3JMIM The Lethbttdge Herald ebruar 241971 28 SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta. Wednesday. February h'l a GREAT DAY lo SMVE EVKYONE'S FAVOKIII (Special on Bulk Odm) ERICKSEN'S 2021 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-77S1 Service tenders opened Borger Construction Ltd. of Calgary has submitted the low bid lor provision of services to Phase 1 of the city's west side development. Tenders were called by the city for two alternates one the original. servicing project for Phase 1, the other for ser- vices only to the eastern por- tion. Borger's bid on alternate one was on alternate two it was The highest of the four bids came from Cans Engineering Ltd. of Calgary, whose alter- nate one bid was For alternate two their bid was I Whissell Enterprises of Ed- monton submitted bids of 300 and Bids of 000 and came from Cunningham and Shannon Ltd. of Taber. The project involves installa- tion of drainage, sewer and water systems, plus roadworks on the periphery of Phase I. Most of the same items are in- cluded in both alternates; the second is simply smaller in scope. Ted Lawrence, engineering director, said the bids would be submitted to council for their consideration "in due course." He noted that the city has a 30-day period before the contract had to be awarded. The method of tendering, us- ing the two alternates, and the possible delay in letting the contract are related to the fact that projects scheduled for this year in the city's five-year capital budget were approved only to the extent that money was available. How much money will be j available depends on how the city finances still needed for the secondary sew- age treatment facilities. Mayor Anderson has indi- cated if the money can be bor- rowed through Central Mort- gage and Housing Corporation the city will be in a position to provide full services to Phase 1. Other financing meth- ods would likely be more ex- pensive, possibly resulting in the city having to cut back to partial services. Hence the two alternates. The city has received word CMHC will probably approve a million loan if it were approved by the province. teachers involved South school districts move into conciliation low Creek. Crowsnest Pass.
