Woodbury Twp. (Blair) Settles Paving Material Bids


March 14, 2019

Three bids for stone products from Glenn Hawbaker, Grannas Bros., and New Enterprise Stone & Lime were opened during the meeting of Woodbury Township (Blair County), Thursday evening, March 7.

Grannas Bros. was awarded the bids for all stone and free-on-board materials, including pick-up of asphalt.

New Enterprise Stone & Lime was awarded bid on delivered asphalt via COSTARS.

COSTARS is the commonwealth of Pennsylvania's cooperative purchasing program. It serves as a conduit through which eligible local governments are able to participate in contracts established by the state Department of General Services to cost-effectively and efficiently identify suppliers with whom to do business.

Woodbury Township officials cited convenience and price as the basis for the awarding of the bids. Supervisor Craig Hamilton made a motion to award the bids with Supervisor Ed Clark seconding and the motion passed.

Township Solicitor Dave Pertile was present to discuss the Comcast agreement, which was also discussed last month. Woodbury Township, along with other townships in the area, can receive a payment from Comcast for its use of township roads and utility lines.

Currently, the agreement provides a one-percent payment to the township. Using Comcast’s fourth-quarter 2018 financial reports, Solicitor Pertile told the supervisors that an increase to 5 percent would net the township an estimated $9,500 total.

Pertile said he would work on the change to the agreement but said that any increase will not take effect until next year.

Supervisor Ed Clark said he wanted Pertile to discuss with Comcast the branching out to cover more areas of Woodbury Township with television and internet services.
