(PORT ANGELES) – The city of Port Angeles has finally approved a contract to remove garbage and fix a failing bluff at the city's old landfill site, following a protest by one of the firms who bid on the project.
The city council was poised to approved a 13-million dollar contract with a California-based company last week, but the vote was put on hold, when the second highest bidder on the project protested the winning bid.
This week, the council voted to move forward with the project after they addressed the complaint. City public works director Craig Fulton says the contract calls for removing nearly 400-thousand cubic yards of garbage from the old landfill on the west end of the city. After analysis, city officials decided to relocate the trash within the existing landfill.
Work should begin this this July, with a total cost of about 19 million dollars.
