Mayor and Council approved to award Ellis Wood Contracting, of Bulloch County, a contract worth $48,720.00 for the installation of traffic speed humps on Windhaven Drive, Miles Crossing, Madison Drive and Paul Caswell Blvd. Paul Simonton, of Simonton Engineering said they sent out four proposals to paving contractors, but there was no response. He said he reached out to Ellis Wood who provided the bid. Councilmember Keith Jenkins asked if there was a local contractor able to do the job and if they were contacted. Simonton said most other contractors had turned down the proposal because they had several pending contracts. Councilwoman Vicky Nelson said this project has been on the table for almost a year and that the contract should be accepted so the project can move forward.
