Mayor Vaughn briefed the board on the progress of the oil and chip road repair at the Peninsula Subdivision. Because Johnson County Highway Department cannot complete the work before Winter, and it is deemed critical that the work be completed before cold weather, a bid was considered by Illini Asphalt Corporation in the amount of $69,460.00, to be paid from TIF # 2. The village clerk asked Attorney Elvis Cameron for his input on the law regarding accepting the bid from one company. He stated that as long as there are no other companies that provide the service in the area, the need for publishing a request for bids was not required. He said he would confirm this fact with the engineers. (copy attached)
