MINUTES OF THE MEETING
of the
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
June 18, 1959

On June 15 bids were received for site work for the MSU-O Faculty Housing development. Bids received are tabulated below:

  Name of Bidder
Base Proposal
Alt. 1
Alt. 2
  Doherty & Doherty
$29,250
$8,118
$ 950
  J. A. Fredman, Inc
31,118
21,828
3,412
  Stanley Jone
31,704
15,435
2,513

The base proposal covered grading and road work for only 26 lots whereas alternates 1 and 2 would cover site work for approximately 40 additional lots. In view of the favorable alternate bids it appears desirable to complete site work for 65 lots.

Therefore it is recommended that a contract be awarded to the low bidder, Doherty & Doherty, and the following budget be established for this project:

  Roads and grading per bids
$38,318
  Survey and stake-out
2,500
  Lake-front improvement
5,000
  Blacktop roadways
14,800
  Contingency
2,382
   
$63,000
  Architect
7,000
   
$70,000

Although the Board gave tentative approval of this project at the May meeting, no formal financing arrangement has been approved by the Board. It is suggested that we borrow funds from the MSU Dormitory Housing Reserve in the amount of $70,000 and that lease-hold rentals be pledged to repay the loan, together with 4% interest on unpaid balances.

On motion of Mr. Harlan, seconded by Mr. Rouse, it was voted to approve the above item.
