YOUNGSTOWN -- The city's board of control awarded a $176,742 contract to a Canfield company to install the flooring inside the Youngstown Convocation Center.

Youngstown Tile and Terrazzo Co. was the lone bidder for the flooring contract. The engineer's estimate for the job was $180,000.

About two-thirds of the work at the downtown arena is finished.

The arena's estimated cost is $41 million. Its opening date is Nov. 4 for the home opener for the Youngstown SteelHounds, the Central Hockey League team that will play at the facility.

The city has either awarded contracts or will do so shortly on major work at the facility with only minor items outstanding.

The board approved the flooring contract at its Thursday meeting.

The board also awarded a $22,329 contract to Mid-Ohio Material Handling Inc. of Akron to provide a forklift, six fork extensions and one work platform for the arena. Two other companies submitted proposals for the contract.

Various road projects

The board of control approved a contract for the city to pay $56,000, or 20 percent, of a $280,000 state project to improve roads and bridges on and near the Madison Avenue Expressway.

The Ohio Department of Transportation plans to improve Grace Street from Belmont to Fifth avenues; the expressway's westbound service road from Elm Street to Andrews Avenue; the eastbound service road from the Fifth Avenue ramp to Andrews Avenue; Hayman Street from Covington Street to Belmont Avenue; and Madison Avenue from Covington to Fifth.

The board also approved two contracts with Youngstown State University's Center for Urban and Regional Studies to provide professional services related to the implementation of the Youngstown 2010 comprehensive plan.

One contract is for $25,000 for mapping services and technical assistance to the city's planning department to implement aspects of the comprehensive plan. The other is for $30,000 to have the center provide advising and liaison services related to the city's comprehensive planning process.

As part of the deal, YSU waived $25,502 in overhead fees, and won't charge the city a $28,919 fee for staff salaries and benefits related to the two contracts.
