The city of Bedford has awarded a contract for the extension of the 460 West water line. The hope is that the project will spur commercial development in the revenue sharing zone west of the city.
The winning bid for the project was $316,000 by George E. Jones and Sons. The bids had ranged from that winning bid up to $423,000.
City Manager Charles Kolakowski said developers like to know that the utility service is in place prior to committing to a project.
