LaPorte Construction Co., Inc., $293,659.00

Duncan Robertson, Inc. $369,485.50


Jacob Isenburg, HWC Engineering, said that he solicited up to ten contractors, and five of them purchased plans to review and make a bid. The estimated cost on the project is $350,000.


Commissioner Heimlich said that the bids will be taken under advisement and awarded at the next meeting on August 15, 2016.



Clint Jolliff, NIPSCO Project Manager, updated the commissioners on the Reynolds-Topeka project.


Mr. Jolliff said that there will be 50 structures put up in White County and all of the access roads for the right-of-ways are now constructed. CJ Drilling and PAR Electric are subcontractors that will be working in White County on this project. As far as a timeline on the project, all of the foundation work will be completed by the end of August, all of the structure hauling will be completed early September and they are hoping to have all of the wire pulled by the end of the year.



Bill Koch, 6919 N. Skaggs Court, Monticello appeared to discuss a drainage problem on the west side of Skaggs Court that is affecting his property. He said that the water is coming across the road and flooding his house. He has talked with the Highway Superintendent about getting this repaired, but he would like to have it done before another rain causes his house to flood again. He also complained that the standing water on the road in front of his property is creating pot holes and causing the road to rot away.


Highway Superintendent Kyburz wasn’t for sure if this was a county tile, but said that he will check to see if the tile is open. If it is, he is going to do a restructure where it comes in from the wooded area to prevent it from blocking up. He spent a short time discussing other ways they might be able to take to address the flooding.


There being no further business to come before the board, their meeting was adjourned.
