Published 11:00 pm Monday, November 25, 2013

The Pike County Commission accepted a bid to begin a countywide striping project.

Pike County Engineer Russell Oliver said the Road Department had received some good news earlier in the week. “I have some great news,” Oliver said. “We had set aside $100,000 in the yearly budget for this striping project. We had a bid come back with every road we had wanted at $85,682.12. We had some great bids, and we are very happy with the price point. We recommend that we accept the bid from Peak Pavement. We will add more roads back in to get closer to the budget.”

The commission also approved five other pieces of business:
