Palisades East grading project awarded

Mitch Holtz with Fox Stand Engineering talks to the Iowa Falls City Council on Monday about the Palisades East Subdivision grading project.

The Iowa Falls City Council met in special session Monday and hired Cole Excavating LLC of Greene, Iowa, for dirt excavation, concrete, and water and sewer placement on the road leading to Palisades East subdivision, which will stretch from River Road. Cole Excavating was the low bidder at $2,426,901. Three total project bids had been received; Peterson Contractor of Reinbeck bid $2,630,706, and Gehrke, Inc. of Eldora bid $2,874,447.75.

“Obviously the weather plays a large role this time of year in getting started,” Jeremy Cole of Cole Excavating said. “I’m hoping to start by early April.”
