A gusher of savings in Bellingham

BELLINGHAM

Refurbishing the town's Grove Street standpipe will cost the town much less than anticipated.

Town Administrator Denis Fraine told this week's selectmen's meeting that said seven companies had bid on the project, which has been scheduled for this summer. The lowest bid of $559,500, Fraine said, was just over half of the $1 million the town anticipated spending.

In a letter to the selectmen, Public Works Director Don DiMartino called the low bidder, Hemi Enterprises Inc. of South Attleboro, a well-respected company. Selectmen unanimously approved awarding the contract to Hemi.
