COLUMBIANA - The city will replace a bridge on South Main Street.
City Council passed a second reading of the legislation last week and the replacement is estimated to cost $280,000.
City Manager Keith Chamberlin previously said an Ohio Public Works grant will fund $177,000, with the city responsible for the remainder. The money would come out of the capital improvement fund and has already been set aside for the project.
The century-old concrete stone bridge will be replaced with a concrete box culvert next summer.
Council also awarded a contract to Classical Construction LLC, of Apple Creek, Ohio, for the construction of the new cemetery office/equipment storage building.
The company submitted the lowest bid of the 10 received. At $153,995, the bid came in under the original estimated cost of $160,000.
The highest bid for the work came in at $242,000 from Air Technology Inc.
The new building will replace the building that was destroyed in a fire in 2010. Three large diesel riding mowers worth between $10,000 and $13,000, as well as other equipment, was also destroyed in the fire.
All items were insured, and the city will use the $125,000 insurance payment to put toward the construction of the new building, Chamberlin said.
The new building will be bigger than the original and constructed in a different location.
