The Knox Board of Works last week rejected the lone bid received for sewer relining. Wastewater Superintendent Kelly Clemons sent three packets but said two of the contractors did not have time to submit proposals due to holiday breaks. LCS turned in the only proposal, which was significantly more than the city had anticipated spending for the work.
For now the board opted to just reject the bid rather than sending revised bid packets or soliciting proposals from additional contractors. No timeline was mentioned for doing so.
