Mandan to Resurface Paving,
City Commissioners Decide Approximate Cost Is $8,200; Protests Heard Again Last Evening ' Mandan will spend approximately $8,200 for double flush coating, or re surfacing, 13 blocks of paving in the business district in the near future, it was announced this morning by Charles D. Cooley, president of the city commission. The commissioners awarded the contract for the work to the Haggart Construction company, Fargo, at a long business meeting last evening at which protests against the work from various taxpayers were heard. Bid Made Week Ago The bid for the W T ork by the Hag gart company was as follows: War renite bitulithtc base for patching, per batch of 1,000 pounds, $6.50; War renite bitulithic top for patching, per batch of 1,000 pounds, $7.50; dou ble flush coating, 30 cents per square yard. Many of the taxpayers who a week ago signed petitions objecting to the work as unnecessary and extravagant withdrew their names from the peti tions last night and many others in favor of the work presented petitions asking for it at last evening's session, according to W. H. Seitz, city auditor. J. O. Sullivan and O. H. Peterson, two not in favor of the work at this time, voiced objections before the commission, which, after a study, de cided that the work must be done in the near future, despite protests, and that it can be done most economical ly this year while the Haggart com pany still has its equipment in the city. Paving to be resurfaced includes Main street from Second avenue northeast to Sixth avenue northwest and all avenues between Main and First streets from Collins to Fifth avenue northwest. Completion Expected Soon Mr. Cooley said he expected work to be started in a few days and com pleted rapidly. Contracts for paving in two dis trict, Nos. 19 and 20, each including one block of north and south alley paving, were awarded to the Haggart company last night. The bid for dis trict No. 19 was $1,005.20 and for No. 20 it was $1,302.20. Auditor Seitz was ordered by the commissioners to make payment for the work. The remainder of the meeting, which lasted more than three hours, was taken up with routine business. f lowans Resume Trip After Mixup Which Led to Their Arrest A man and woman from lowa, held in Mandan overnight pending an in vestigation, were freed this morning »nd continued on their automobile trip eastward. * • They were held while the disap pearance of a man’s traveling bag at Glen Ullin was being Investigated.
