WHEREAS, The City Engineer was involved in the preparation of the project description and plan, and

WHEREAS, The Council finds that the quotation received from Eastern Iowa Excavating should be accepted and that an agreement should be drafted and entered by and between the City of Monticello and Eastern Iowa Excavating to perform said work in the spring and early summer of 2017, in advance of the Main Street reconstruction and overlay project.
