During a meeting Monday morning, West Penn Township awarded bids for road work totalling more than $200,000, but tabled bids for pipe material.
AMS, Center Valley, was the lone bidder for seal coating at $135,951. Lehigh Asphalt, Tamaqua, got the bid for stone and asphalt, with a bid of $75,375. The only other bidder was EJB, West Lawn.
For the stone and asphalt bids, the supervisors used a "hauling cost justification" to determine which bidder was lowest. Chairman Jim Akin said that mileage costs, as well as pickup and delivery costs, are included in the calculation.
