Commissioner Larry Childs is he chairman of the committee, and after opening the Oct. 18 meeting, he turned to Commissioner Tommy Robinson for an update about progress with a project to expand the Griswoldville waterline.
Robinson said Water Superintendant Freddie Wiggins gathered prices for laying the line, and the lowest price was from Frank Taylor Enterprises Inc. for $11,100. The job includes installing the line and hauling off the debris.
The second part of the project is boring under the road. The low bid for that portion was from Sydney Pyles Plumbing and Contracting Company for $12,350.
Committee members voted unanimously to approve the low bids for the project.
County Administrator Mike Underwood said the board had already voted to move forward with the project, and no further vote was necessary.
