Subject:             Award of Construction Contract Homer Airport Underground Fuel Tank Removal




On February 13, 2014 bids were received for the Homer Airport Underground Fuel Tank Removal project.  This work was advertised via email/fax to 12 area contractors.


This project will consist of removing the underground fuel oil tank and capping all pipes and conduits that supply it along with backfilling and re-seeding the removal area. The removal of this tank will significantly reduce the City’s potential liability associated with the underground fuel tank.


Six responsive bids were received from qualified firms.  The bid results were evaluated and the results are as follows.
