WEEDVILLE – The Jay Township Supervisors recently opened, reviewed, and approved bids for the purchase of dust oil and for the dumpster that is typically located at the township building during the summer months.
Three dust oil bids were received from the following companies: HRI, Inc. at a cost of $2.21 a gallon, Vollmer Tar and Chip Inc. at a cost of $2.34 a gallon, and Jefferson Paving Corp. at a cost of $2.22 a gallon. Supervisors approved awarding the bid to HRI Inc., noting that the company has received the bid for a number of years now.
The supervisors indicated that they plan to purchase around 20,000 gallons of dust oil for use this summer.
The cost per gallon is up slightly from what the township paid last year. In 2010, the township awarded the dust oil bid to Whitaker Road Corp. at a cost of $2.18 per gallon.
Only one bid, from Elk Waste Service, Inc., was submitted for the township's summer dumpster. The cost for a 40-yard container was listed at $170 per pull, plus a landfill charge of $40 per ton. It was unanimously approved by the supervisors.
