A total of three proposals have come into the Municipal District of Taber for their Highway 513 sand seal project.
Overall, prices that came in ranged from $337,876.60 to $493,931.50 and council reviewed all three at their March 8 meeting. The bids came from West-Can at $344,542.78, the second came from ACP Applied Products at $493,931.50, and the last came from Read on Roads at $337,876.60. Administration reviewed all three proposals and gave grades to each one. While the low bid came from Read on Roads, administration recommended to accept the proposal from West-Can. There was $500,000 allowed in the 2022 capital budget for this project.
“We had a proposal go out to APC about four weeks ago. It went out to the public — it’s a Highway 513 sand seal. We received three proposals. One was West-Can, one was ACP Applied Products, and one was Read On Roads. It goes through a scoring system that myself and Stu (Weber, director of Public Works) review and score their proposals. This one Read On Roads was the low bid, but we are proposing to award it to West-Can due to the quality of their proposal and the quality of past work,” explained Cory Greene, Infrastructure program manager.
