Lowest bid wins


At the May 15th South Dundas council meeting, manager of recreation and facilities Don Lewis presented council with quotations for three tenders: playground equipment for three locations, interior painting at Matilda Hall in Dixon’s Corners, and a roof replacement for the Morrisburg dock washroom.

In his first presentation, he asked that council accept a quotation from Henderson Recreation Equipment Ltd. in the amount of $36,055.87 plus HST for the replacement of playground equipment in Winchester Springs as well as in two locations in Morrisburg: Rowan Drive and Coyle Drive.

Three companies were contacted by phone and all three submitted quotes. Henderson Recreation Equipment Ltd. was the lowest bid, providing free delivery and installation.

 The playground equipment is $1,500 lower than the allotted budget. The money comes from the Parkland Reserve fund.

In his second presentation, which focussed on the painting of the interior of Matilda Hall in Dixon’s Corners, Lewis requested that council accept a quote from Precision Painting Services in the amount of $5,090 plus HST.

Following advertisements in local newspapers and on the township website, five companies submitted quotes for the painting job. Precision Painting Services had the lowest bid. The Matilda Hall project came in approximately $1,000 under budget.

Lewis’ third and final presentation was for a replacement roof on the Morrisburg Dock’s washroom. According to Lewis, the project was advertised in the local papers and on the township’s website.

Out of the four companies that responded, Roof Works was chosen for its low bid in the amount of $3,300 plus HST. This project comes in at eight cents over budget.
