Contract signed for snow removal

Adams Excavating will provide snow-removal and plowing services for St. Joseph County again this winter.

The St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners last week renewed a contract for the winter services at the courthouse parking lot, the parks building and animal-control parking lot, and the sheriff’s department/central dispatch parking lot.

Scott Adams, a Centreville resident, will provide his services when accumulation has reached two inches or more, according to terms of the independent-contractor agreement. The contract is in effect through April 15.

Adams will be required to have lots cleared by 7:30 a.m. in the event of overnight snow.

Adams will be paid $375 per snow-clearing/plowing incident.

The contract was awarded to Adams, as no other bids for the job were submitted.
