At Monday night's meeting, council members voted to use crushed aggregate rock. The difference in the bid prices were minimal, $23,600 for pea gravel and $25,835 for the crushed aggregate rock. The project will include seven blocks (7500 sq. yds.) of single seal, five and one-half blocks (5,600 sq. yds.) of double seal and the resurfacing of Rutledge Street (2700 sq. yds.).
