White Oak Council has awarded a contract for improvements to Lincoln Way to Costa Contracting of Cheswick.
At February’s meeting, council approved Costa’s $48,325 bid, contingent upon approval from the Allegheny County Department of Economic Development. Funding is being provided by a county Community Infrastructure and Tourism Fund grant.
In other business, council approved a resolution authorizing the borough to file for a $150,000 grant from the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County’s Gaming Economic Development Fund program.
Officials said the grant would, in part, help pay GeoMechanics Inc. of Elizabeth for services related to the Center Street Extension project.
