North Judson Awards Cemetery Mowing Bids

Highland Cemetery North JudsonThe North Judson Town Council has selected a contractor for cemetery lawn mowing. Altman’s Lawn Service was once again awarded the bid during Monday’s town council meeting, for a cost of $12,000 for the year. They also agreed to mow the lawn at the firehouse when needed, at a cost of $20 for each mowing.

Unlike last year when the deadline for mowing bids had to be extended due to low response, the Town of North Judson had plenty of choice this year, with a total of nine bids being received for 2016. Altman’s was the lowest bidder to provide proof of liability service.

Also during Monday’s meeting, funding for the town’s water tower rehabilitation project took another step forward. The town council gave its final approval to the town’s updated Drug Policy Ordinance. The updates were required as a condition of accepting grant funding from the state. Now that they’ve been formally approved, the planning grant application can officially be submitted.
