Tompkins County Legislature awards firm a nearly $600,000 contract for parking-lot paving project

By Journal Staff


ITHACA — The Tompkins County Legislature on Sept. 19 awarded Nelson & Streeter Construction Co., Inc. of Pine City in Chemung County the contract for paving parking lots at two Tompkins County facilities.

The lots are located at two facilities at the county’s northeast campus — the Health Department and the Emergency Response Center. The contract is for $574,100, the amount of the construction firm’s bid, submitted on Sept. 16. 

The project will be completed in the spring of 2020, timing that enabled the project to “come in significantly under budget,” David McKenna, a Tompkins County legislator and chair of the legislature’s Facilities and Infrastructure Committee, noted in a legislature news release.

The Tompkins County Legislature approved the contract by a unanimous vote, with two legislators (Henry Granison and Leslyn McBean-Clairborne) excused from the vote.
