QUYON Dec. 6 , 2017
Only two companies have placed bids on the upcoming year’s snowplowing contract for Quyon sector in the Municipality of Pontiac.
Those two bids came in at $388,040 and $275,940 – up from $99,000 last year.
According to Municipality of Pontiac Director of Communications Dominic Labrie, the sharp increase in price is related to fines handed out to the companies who carried out snowplowing for the municipality last year.
In response to what the municipality deemed sub-par service, $12,000 worth of fines were handed out to five companies responsible for plowing – with more than half going to one company in particular.
