Subaorlptlon Prloe, 92.00 per Year '■•nefeto-M Cewssr ed Mm Council Fails To Award Contract lbnqthy discussion as to thb width and dbpth of pave- Ment to be laid—stonb companies protest concrete curbing The council chamber was Ailed to Its capacity Tuesday night when Interested citizens, contractors and the council met to discuss the letting of contracts for the paving of Milan ave- ' nue. The paving question was the first in order and after a two-hour discussion, It waa decided tbat the letting of contracts would be postponed until Tuesday evening, May 23. The village clerk received bids from three contractors, namely: The Elyria Construction Company, The Ohio Engineering company and the John Patterson company. All of the bids were cloae, which made It a hard matter for the council to make any decision at that time. It was decided, however, that the bida of the Blyrla Construction company be dropped as their prices* ranged considerable above the other two contractors mentioned above. Engineer Warden read all of the bids on the various types of paving and It waa found that a twenty-four foot concrete pavement and curb seven Inches thick would come within the amount of money that the village has to spend for the improvement. The BUILDING CONSTRUCTION "■* IN OHIO INCREASES Construction contracts awarded In Ohio during the month of Apiil amounted to $24,982,700, according to reports compiled. This was an Increase of 23 per cent over March, and of 5 per cent over April, 1921.
