Dowagiac paving projects approved

Published 3:06pm Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Local street paving bids came in below estimated costs, allowing additional paving work.

The 2013 local street paving project Dowagiac City Council approved April 8 involves resurfacing West Railroad Street, East Telegraph Street to East Prairie Ronde; Oak Street, North Front Street to Jay Street; Cherry Street, Halstead Street to Ashland Street; Park Place, South Front Street to the railroad tracks; and the 100 block of Whitney Avenue.

City Manager Kevin Anderson and Public Services Director James Bradford recommended the council award the contract to J. Allen and Co. Inc. of Galesburg in the amount of $48,828.76 for road paving and $16,529 to pave the parking lot of the new Dowagiac Area History Museum.

Allen’s $65,357.76 bid was the low of three ranging up to $93,151.




Dowagiac and Cass County are in the process of reaffirming their commitment to jointly operate a drug enforcement team.

Voters approved millage in 2004 and renewed .4805 mill in 2012.

Drug enforcement millage supports three sheriff’s detectives, three city detectives, an assistant prosecutor, a clerical staff person and a deputy sheriff from the sheriff’s office. The agreement runs through Dec. 31, 2016, and can be extended.
