Airport work cost less than expected

November 10, 2010

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Board of Aviation was pleased to hear that the cracks in the airport runway have been sealed.
The board, which met Thursday night, has been under pressure to compete the project before weather conditions prevented work. The project was previously awarded to Phend & Brown after F.E. Harding Company withdrew its quote. The board then held a special meeting to award the bid to Phend & Brown for their quote of $44,790.58.
It was noted that the project actually came in around $2,000 less than quoted.
