It is recommended that the Board formally approve the awarding of contracts in the amounts indicated to the low bidders:

Several years ago Oakland County agreed to make a grant of $30,000 per year for five years to aid in the development of Michigan State University-Oakland. To date three installments have been received, and two of the installments have been used to pay interest on the Student Services Center loan. Therefore, we have on hand $30,000 representing the third installment, plus two installments amounting to $60,000 yet to be received. It is proposed that the last three installments totaling $90,000 be committed for the site work at the Intramural Building.

On motion by Mr. Stevens, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was voted to award the contracts to the low bidders as recommended.

Bids have been received for the site work for the Student Residence Halls at Michigan State University-Oakland, as follows:

  Stanley M. Jones Co.

Since all of the financing of this project is through a loan with the Housing & Home Finance Agency, our budget provides only $43,081 for this work. It is recommended that both bids be rejected.

On motion by Mr. Huff, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was voted to reject the above bids. (p. 96)
