DuBOIS — The DuBois City Council held a brief work session Thursday afternoon and awarded three bids for the Stern Field renovations at the ballfield off Parkway Drive.

Based on recommendations by city Engineer Chris Nasuti, the bid for general construction was awarded to Hailstorm Construction in the amount of $973,646. The plumbing contract went to Fred L. Burns Inc. in the amount of $68,500. The bid for electrical construction was awarded to Hallstrom-Clark Electric in the amount of $94,314.

Each firm was the respective low bidder.

Auto-paymentsThe council OKd a request from City Manager John “Herm” Suplizio to allow the city to enroll in automatic payment for recurring bills such as for electric, telephone and natural gas.

Otherwise, those bills are placed on the registry of invoices for approval at each regular council meeting and, depending on how due dates line up with meeting dates, the city can incur late fees for failing to pay on time.

Sidewalk updateNasuti said workers on the sidewalk project along Beaver Drive will be inserting concrete next week, which could result in longer traffic delays.
