The board previously met Monday to open and receive bids for the $19 million project, but had not received a bid for this measure. The city is planning on applying for a Regional Economic Acceleration & Development Initiative (READI) grant cycle and held the bidding process to determine the full price received from the grant.

Bedford Utilities Director Misty Adams reached out to receive bids for the flushing system, to avoid having to re-bid each part of the project. Gabriel Novac & Associates put in a quote for $450,000, and was the only bid received for the system.
