A low bid of $1.595 million was awarded to Di-Mar Construction, Inc. for the construction work on the $2.12 million project at the Jan. 4 Braham Council meeting. City Engineer Brian Miller described Di-Mar as a responsible company with very good references. He added that the seven total bids came in extremely tight, with just $42,000 separating the low three bidders.

Funding for the project includes a $1.314 million grant and $778,000 loan from the USDA’s “Rural Development” plan.
