SEWER PROJECT TO BE RE-BID: Due to math errors in the only submitted bid for the city of Platte's sanitary sewer project, the city council voted to reject the bid and accept bids again.

The project was bid on Jan. 25, and the only bid received was from HR Green, which came in within budget. But because of accounting errors, the city council will re-bid the project beginning Feb. 15.
