Council approves retainer payments
STOCKDALE -- The approval of final retainer payments due to two companies involved with Stockdale’s water- and streets-improvement projects was the only order of business for an Oct. 7 special called meeting of the Stockdale City Council.
According to Stockdale City Secretary Thania Santos after the meeting, the council authorized the city manager to make the following payments from the city’s disbursement fund:
•Newman & Keng Paving Co. Inc., $83,938.53
•Central Texas Water Maintenance, $49,267.04
•Central Texas Water Maintenance, $60,207.15, to be paid 10 calendar days after substantial completion of the water-improvements project.
Newman & Keng Paving Co. of Giddings was awarded the streets-improvement project during the Nov. 29, 2012, special called council meeting. This included the expansion of Wheeler Street and extension of the street into the Stockdale Industrial Park, located off U.S. 87.
