The township trustees opened three bid offers for a project to install streetlights on Raccoon Road near Austintown Middle School.
The township estimate for installation of the 27 streetlights on the road was $190,686, of which the township would pay 20 percent. A state Transportation Enhancement Grant would cover the remainder of the cost.
Main Lite Electric Co. Inc. of Warren bid $191,671 for the job; the Perram Electric Inc. of Wadsworth bid $185,507; and B&J Electric Inc. of Poland submitted a $254,251 bid.
The trustees will review the bids and could have a recommendation to award a contract at their next meeting. Trustee Lisa Oles said at Monday’s meeting this project has been in the works since 2010.
