Brookhaven rejects bids for Ashford Park Trike Track
Brookhaven, GA, Aug. 22, 2017 – The bids are in for the Ashford Park Trike Track, and the City of Brookhaven is selecting none of them.
The City estimated a cost of approximately $10,000 for the project. The only two bids received were $65,000 and $75,000.
“We are rejecting all of the bids. These amounts are unconscionable,” said Brookhaven City Manager Christian Sigman. “Staff will revisit the scope of work to ensure the description is clear, and that all qualified contractors have an ample opportunity to provide a competitive bid.”
The project is one of the improvements identified in the Ashford Park Master Plan. The scope of the work involved converting an existing concrete pathway into a tricycle track for children using colored stain and traffic marking paint on top of the existing concrete. This included pressure washing, the application of concrete stain and traffic marking paint; and tricycle-traffic signage.
