MAKES BIDDING LIVELY THIS CITY HAS GAINED AN Eh VIABLE REPUTATION FOR THE WAY PUBLIC CONTRACTS ARE PROMPTLY PAID FOR. Outside contractors are making It difficult for local bidders to secure con tracts for public improvements this season. So few cities in tii3 cart of the country are doing any improve- j ment that there is a far greater supply . cf bidders than ever before. Until this ' year the local field has been almost i entirely in the hands of local contrac tors. But the outriders have broken in now and carried away a large number of contracts. These men-say they have come to stay. Cement is cheaper thi3 year than for several years and as the result the bids are much lower. A Gcod Reputation. The city has gained an enviable rep utation among contractqrs because of the way in which public improvement's are paid for. This reputation has fol lowed principally upon the completion of the southwest sewer system, which was put in last year.- This Job amount ed to more than foo.OCO. Contractors have expected to take such big jobs with a loss of $.3,000 to $4,000 because of failure of property owners to pay the improvement assessments. Con tractor Hipskind of Wabash, took the work after he had been practically coaxed to do it and has now received all his money with , the exception of $6.40. -This sum is owed by the own er cf a lot which -was cut in two by South West D street The street was laid out, so that it left a few feet cf the lot on each side. If the owners of the adjoining lots can be induced to buy these few extra feet and pay the sewer assessment there will be no loss at all. One contractor said a few days ago he had been trying to break into the Richmond improvements. He said he had come here to land jobs and intend ed to do so. He failed in his first two attempts, but since then has been awarded two contracts. Other con tractors have had similar experiences and today Richmond is recognized as the most desirable city in the state for contractors to bid on public improve ments.
