WAVERLY TWP. - Contractors were chosen at the June 24 Waverly Township meeting for the wastewater treatment facility job. The job was awarded to Quandel Construction Group Inc. and Everon Electrical Contractors Inc. was awarded the electrical work.
Tom Bailey, Project Superintendent for Linde Corp., attended the meeting to voice his frustration about the bidding. Linde Corp. submitted a bid for the job but was rejected as no one came to the pre-bid meeting. Representatives from Linde said they attended a pre-bid meeting on an incorrect day, due to a newsprint error. Bailey said he felt “wronged by it” and believes the township could have gotten more bids had the date been correct in the newspaper. Township manager Bill White had noticed the mistake earlier and two more newspaper cycles were distributed with the correct date and time, he said.
