Revised $1.1 million paving contract approved in Nashua
On average, about four to six miles of city roads are paved each fiscal year at a cost of about $1 million, according to Mayor Donnalee Lozeau.
The original contract was for nearly $798,000, however a change order of about $289,000 was approved this week, making the total contract nearly $1.1 million.
Alderman Dan Moriarty, Ward 9, voted against the contract, telling his fellow board members that reconsideration periods are appropriate, and he believes they should be applied when considering significant purchases.
The new $1.1 million contract is a combination of funds from over two fiscal years, Lozeau said. By revising the contract now, Sunshine Paving will be able to continue its work without any delay during the summer months, she said.
The new paving schedule will be posted on the city’s website to notify citizens of the upcoming work, and aldermen will be informed when their areas are about to be paved, said the mayor.
