Lamar Redevelopment Authority Approves Grant


The Lamar Redevelopment Authority recommended a CDOT TAP (Transportation Alternative Program) grant be awarded to Daniels Construction in Lamar during its October 28th meeting. The grant is for $500,000 which includes 30 permanent benches, 20 movable benches, 48 trash receptacles, 197 flower pots and one sound system to be used for downtown Lamar events.

All items except the permanent benches were a direct purchase from the City of Lamar.   The permanent benches were put to bid for which only Daniels Construction had applied for the deadline of October 16th. The bid was $271,470. While the bid came in high, the city is under budget overall and the funding can make up the $26,925 difference.

The bid included removal of some sidewalk, structure excavation and backfill as well as brick masonry veneer, concrete and other materials.
