Contract for landfill fix delayed

(Port Angeles) – The city of Port Angeles will wait before approving a contract to remove garbage and fix a failing bluff at the city's old landfill site.
The city council was poised to approved a 13-million dollar contract with a California-based company this week.
But the vote was put on hold, when the second highest bidder on the project protested the winning bid.
City officials have since sent an official letter stating the winning bid from Magnus Pacific, which has offices in Everett, is complete after another review. The letter is a requirement under state law. The city council could vote on the contract next week.
The contract calls for removing nearly 400-thousand cubic yards of garbage from the old landfill on the west end of the city. It also outlines work on a seawall to prevent more erosion in the area.
The city believes the entire project could cost about 19 million dollars.
