County ready to start on electric purchase plan
Written by Larry Limpf   
Friday, 14 May 2010 08:33

An agreement for the collective purchasing of electrical power for residents and small businesses in 16 Ottawa County townships and municipalities could be in effect by the end of the summer, a county commissioner says.
 
Voters in the communities overwhelmingly supported ballot measures which authorize local elected officials to enter into electrical aggregations agreements and have the county represent them in negotiations with suppliers for service.
 
Jim Sass, a county commissioner, said the next step in the aggregation process is for the elected officials from each jurisdiction to approve resolutions allowing the county to represent them as a certified aggregator.
 
Townships that would be covered include Allen, Bay, Benton, Carroll, Catawba, Clay, Danbury, Erie, Harris, Portage, Put-in-Bay, and Salem; villages include Clay Center, Marblehead, and Rocky Ridge. The City of Port Clinton is also part of the aggregated group.

The city last week entered into a $4,098,725 contract with Hank’s Plumbing & Heating Co., to furnish labor, materials and equipment, and a $260,263.31 contract with Davey Resource Group, a division of Davey Tree Expert Company, for furnishing labor, materials and equipment for wetland mitigation for the Big Ditch improvement project.
 
Public Service Director Paul Roman received bids on the project on May 4.
 
Hank’s Plumbing, of Toledo, was the lowest of seven bids submitted for the project. Vernon Nagel, Inc., of Napoleon, submitted a bid of $4,381,577, Geo Gradel Co., of Toledo, submitted a bid of $4,588,802, Underground Utilities, Inc., of Monroeville, Ohio, submitted a bid for $4,465,313, Crestline Paving & Excavating Co., Inc., of Toledo, $4,549,002.50, Haynes Construction, of Norwalk, $4,479,497, and Mark Schaffer Excavating, of Norwalk, $5,024,567.70.
 
The city received three bids for the wetland mitigation project. Deitering Landscaping, Inc., submitted the low bid of $207,024.24, but later withdrew it due to a clerical/arithmetic mistake. Legally, the city could either award the project to the next lowest bidder, Davey Resource Group, of Kent, Ohio, or reject the bids for wetland mitigation and resubmit the project for bidding. The city recommended the contract be awarded to Davey because it has extensive experience in wetland mitigation and stream restoration projects, including work on the North Pearson Park Wetland Project, and the Heckman Ditch Stream restoration along Wynn Road. Aaron Landscaping, Inc., of Broadview, Ohio, has submitted a bid for $339,085.83.

A photo in the May 17 issue of The Press of Genoa High School students Richard Wonnell and Serena Parlette was incorrectly attributed to photographer Harold Hamilton. The photo was taken by George Pollauf.
