Wayne commissioners take the show on the road

In other business the commissioners, with Fritz opposed, approved two bids from Quandel Construction of Scranton, for a $359,066 contract to install an elevator in the old Courthouse, and $14,000 bid alternate for fourth floor renovation of the courthouse annex.

The project had been re-bid after an initial low bid of $482,000 was rejected in late July, but in explaining his opposition Fritz said it still “doesn’t pass my cost to benefit requirements.” He declined to elaborate saying he did not want the issue to become divisive on the panel.

Fritz also voted no earlier, when his colleagues approved the reallocation of $10,546 of federal Community Block Grant Development funding, which had been returned to the county pool.
