This year, four South Dundas concrete bridges will receive hot pressure washes and a coat of “penetrating” sealer from Guardian Coatings.
The South Dundas council approved the decision during the May 1st council meeting following manager of public works Hugh Garlough’s recommendation.
According to Garlough, three companies were invited to bid: Guardian Coating, Cruickshank Construction, and Cornwall Gravel.
Cornwall Gravel declined to bid due to the unavailability of necessary equipment, said Garlough.
Of the remaining two companies, Guardian Coating had the lower bid by almost $2,000.
The cost to have the bridges washed and sealed is $4,773.56, including HST and HST rebate.
“They’ve done this for the township since amalgamation,” said Garlough. “They used to do it for Williamsburg.”
