YATES – The Town Board approved a construction bid last week that was below estimates for a water district expansion.

Pilon Construction in Albion was the low bidder for the project will serve 12 residences east of the Village of Lyndonville. Pilon’s bid of $280,168 was the lowest of four bidders. The next lowest bid was $354,657 from Blue Heron Construction.

The project, Water District No. 4 – Phase 10, covers Ward and Goodwin roads and is the last stretch of Yates without public waterlines. Ward and Goodwin are between Alps and Platten roads, and west of the Ashwood hamlet.

Yates has $100,000 set aside in a water district reserve. The town plans to borrow the remaining costs with a low-interest loan.
