VIENNA - Vienna City Council Thursday accepted proposals for two public works projects and the purchase of equipment and salt.
Council accepted the bid of $224,995 from Jimmy Harper Construction for various paving projects around the city. Mayor David Nohe said after review of the bid, Harper met the council's specifications.
City Recorder Randy Rapp said three generators will be purchased for the city and two generators will be used for pumps at the water and sewage plants. The generators will be purchased from the Cecil I. Walker Machinery Co. of Parkersburg for $167,600.

Council did not go with the lowest bid on the generators because they opted for larger, quieter generators, Rapp said.
The salt to be used this winter on city streets will come from North American Salt. The purchase of the salt will cost the city between $55 and $57 a ton, pick-up and delivery, respectively.
The salt will be purchased as needed, Nohe said. The city currently has a sufficient salt supply, but should the winter be more harsh than previous ones, the city will be prepared.
