Bids from contractors were opened Tuesday for Raymondville’s approximately $2.4 million street repaving project.

Bids were turned over to the city’s engineer to study whether they comply with specifications and with state law, Mayor Gilbert Gonzales said.

“It will be in two phases, with the west side first, then the east,” the mayor said. “It should be done by mid-February or March.” The roads in the city cemetery on the east edge of the city will also be paved.

A $2,589,492 contract to Ferguson services systems of Olmito was awarded for a reverse osmosis system that will purify water from a well and blend it with treated water from a canal that moves water to Raymondville through the Delta Lake Irrigation District’s canals.

Jesus Reyes Vasquez of Delmita, near Rio Grande City, was given a contract to maintain the city’s computer system.

Guzman & Munoz Engineering of Mercedes was awarded a contract to provide engineering services for the city.

Golf pro Lupe Serna was given a $30,000 supplement for 2018-2019 fiscal year for operation of the Municipal Golf Course.

City commissioners agreed to provide $500 to purchase supplies for the annual Raymondville Safe Haven Halloween event to be held Oct. 31 at Little League Park.
