GRANDVIEW – Port of Grandview commissioners this past Tuesday authorized its engineering firm to advertise for bids for its cul-de-sac project.
The cul-de-sac to be constructed will provide access to Pallet Place, a business intended to open in the Wallace Way business park.
The cul-de-sac construction project is estimated at more than $500,000.
JUB Engineering was authorized to advertise for bids on the construction of a cul-de-sac by a 3-0 vote.
Port commissioners also discussed the progress of property sales to the Pallet Place and Oasis Blueberries. Both sales contracts, said Port Secretary Jim Sewell, are in the hands of the title company.
“We expect closing on the sales of the property in the next two weeks,” he said.
In other business, Sewell noted the purchase of a building to be used as a business incubator is still not complete. Sewell said port officials expect the purchase closing date will be sometime next month.
Other action taken Tuesday included a revision to the Port of Grandview’s policy related to advertisements on its digital reader board. Sewell said commissioners formalized a policy that allows non-profits headquartered in the Port of Grandview district to advertised community events and fundraisers free of charge.
The policy revision was approved unanimously.
