CEDAR CITY–City Engineer Kit Wareham discussed the bids for the installation of field lights on the north fields at the Fields at the Hills with the Cedar City Council during the April 18 work meeting.
Wareham explained that lights were not installed on fields two and three when the Fields at the Hills was constructed.
“Lights were not installed on these fields when we did the original complex, so we went ahead and budgeted money for this,” he said.
He also said that the lighting equipment for this project was purchased through a contract with Musco Lighting, and three other bids were received for the different installation processes of the lights.
The city staff’s recommendation for the eight light pole foundation installations is Blackburn and Associates, for $40,000. The recommendation to erect the eight light poles and install the lights is Construction Steel, for $24,784. This bid is a time and materials bid, meaning it is based on an estimation of the time required for this portion of the project, and the city will only be responsible for the actual time it takes to complete. The last recommendation is for Marshall Evan Electric to install the wiring and electrical components needed to power the lights for $55,100. This is also a time and materials bid.
