Jefferson Asphalt wins paving bid
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Charles Town, W.Va., company will do asphalt work at the Berkeley County Board of Education's bus garage and at Hedgesville High School, the Berkeley County Board of Education decided Monday night.
Jefferson Asphalt was the lower of two bidders for the two projects with a combined bid of $90,700, according to Assistant Superintendent James R. Welton Jr., who recommended the board accept the bid.
The other bidder, Potomac Construction, offered to do both jobs for $92,975, Welton said.
The board voted unanimously to hire Jefferson Asphalt for the jobs.
The school system has a lot of paving to do, and will do it as funding becomes available based on priority, Welton said. Tuscarora Elementary School probably should be next on the list, he said.
