BOC approves construction bids
By Rachel Oswald
The Newton County Board of Commissioners approved a bid for construction services for the replacement of the Hightower Road bridge over Gum Creek at their Tuesday night meeting.
The board approved the $937,755 bid of Cline Service Corporation. The actual lowest bidder, Hitson Construction Company, was dis- qualified from bidding as the company was not Georgia Department of Transportation pre-qualified.
The BOC also approved a delivery service strategy agreement with Covington, Oxford and Porterdale. The agreement covers no new changes to previous service delivery agreements with the three municipalities.
The BOC will meet next on Mar. 18 at 7 p.m. at the Historic Courthouse.
