CITY TO BUILD
ITS OWN SEWER
AT LEAST SUCH IS PROBABILITY
Nothing Decided Definitely, But
Chances An City Could Save
Thousands by Doing So.
Instead of there being a strong
possibility of the bid of John Gllli
gau & Co. of Falls City, Neb., on .he
sewer being accepted at the next
council meeting, there is a va.'v
strong probability that it will be re
jected, together with all the rest of
the bids that were submitted. The
members of the council have been
busying themselves for the last three
weeks, looking into the comparative
cost of building the sewer by the day
or 'by contract. Many of
them, It Is said, have satisfied them
selves thait the former plan would be
the cheaper of the two and would be
far more satisfactory to the people.
It seems not to have been well un
derstood why the council advertised
for more bids after the Mulllns bid
was finally made inoperative. It
was 'the opinion of the city attorney
th* !t would be Illegal for the city
to a ahead and build the sewer
with it first advertising for new
bids. It was, therefore, decided to
do so, with the result that several
bids were received. Of these bids,
the one submitted by John Oilllgan
& Co. was the lowest. In spite of
that company's urgent demand that
the city award the bid on the night
it was opened, the council refused to
do so and the entire matter was held
over for three weeks, or until the
next regular meeting of the council,
which will be next Monday evening.
That was the purpose behind the re
edtei tisement of the sewer contract.
As above stated, however, the
councilmen have been making per
bonal -and private Investigations on
their own account and, while It Is
quite impossible to get all of them to
atate their present views upon the
subject, it Is believed that the bids
win all be rejected. In order to ful
ly go Into the matter and enlighten
all members of the council who get
inquisitive, the committee having
the matter is ehatge, consisting of
Marsh, Keck and Thompson,will meet
seme evening this week and will in
vaie carefully every detail of the
bid. Then, fully primed with the- -*
atgumeuts, the committee '.**..,; re
port to the council and, while it is
Impossible to say anything* deflmtc
ly as coming from the members of the
committee, excepting Councilmin
'lhompson, it. is believed that the re
port will be unfavorable.
Councilman Thompson doe.*; not
lavor the plan to award the contra. r,
a; lie believes that it can be done
considerably cheaper by the city, "t
do not intend to vote to award the
contract," said Mr. Thompson. "I
think that the city can build that
sewer for $8,000 or $10,000 less than
the bids that we have received."
Councilman Armbruster was the
only member of the council who
would come out flat-footed and say
that he favored awarding the con
tract to the highest bidder. Council
man Lane is a little bit on the fence.
He said: "I do not exactly favor
the system that has been outlined
and upon which we have received
bids. But I do think that If any
bid Is let at all that the lowest bid
der should get it."
Councilman Marsh reserved his de
cision until after the committee meet
ing that will be held to determine th?
nature of the report to the council.
"1 am not ready to express any opin
ion," he said, "as I have not yet gone
over the bid sufficiently to make up
my mind definitely upon the ques
Councilman Sehott said "I do not
Councilman Keck said: "I do not
know what will be done with the
bid." He was told that he was not
asked bis opinion as to the
final outcome of the bid, but what
he himself intended to do. To this
question he refused to answer.
While it is Impossible at this time
to state absolutely What the result
of the meeting will be. It Is quite
certain that the majority of the
councilmen will be opposed to award
ing the bid, preferring to have the
work done by the city. Many of the
members say that If a contracting
company can do the work at the
figures presented and clear up a
profit, variously estimated at from
$5,000 to $10,000, the city ought
to be able to do the work at the
figures presented, if not at a consid
erably lower figure, saving constd
eiiable by doing so.
