The Keota City Council heard several bids for construction during a special meeting this week.  City Clerk Niki Osweiler says the council received a bid from Bill Miller to begin replacing buildings on Main Street that were lost in a December fire.

Miller has asked the council to allow him to add five feet of property at the back of each building.  Osweiler says according to city regulations, there must be an open bidding for those properties, but Miller was the only one to submit a bid.

She says the council will now draft a resolution concerning the bid and is expected to approve it or reject it during its next meeting.

Council members also heard from Dave Fredericks from French-Reneker regarding the Davis Street water main project.  The city is preparing to replace the water main, and Fredericks presented the financial options the city could pursue.

The Keota City Council will look at those options at its meeting Monday at 7:00 at Keota City Hall.
