·1 min read

The Town of Spaniard’s Bay will use some of its COVID-19 stimulus money to re-shingle the town’s gazebo.

The Town sent out an expression of interest to six local contractors, but received just one quote by the close of bids on Friday, January 29.

That bid, valued at $3,392.50, HST included, was from Bay Ridge Eavestrough Ltd. Included with the quote was a clearance letter from Workplace NL as well as a copy of its Contractor General Liability certificate, both of which were requested.

Council voted unanimously to approve the motion during the February 9 council meeting.

The province, using federal funds, has approved and funded many municipal projects to help stimulate municipalities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For Spaniard’s Bay, the province has approved repairs and upgrades to the gazebo, fire hall, recreation center and signage for the municipal center at a cost of $124,105 to the province and $ 13,789 to the town.
