Staff Writer

The Elk County Commissioners met in regular session on Tuesday morning at the Courthouse Annex in Ridgway.
Present at the meeting were all three commissioners: Dan Freeburg, Janis Kemmer and Matt Quesenberry; Chief Clerk Lee Neureiter, Deputy Clerk Samantha Beaver, Solicitor Tom Wagner and Director of Elections Kimberly S. Frey. In addition, Tracy Gerber, CDBG coordinator, was present for the opening and awarding of construction bids. 
The minutes of previous meetings and the agenda were quickly approved by the Commissioners.
A bid opening for the FY 2018 Ridgway Borough Curb Cuts Project, which retrofits existing curb crossing to be handicapped accessible, occurred at the last meeting on July 16.
At that time, Steger Masonry Inc remained the only bidder on the project and projected a cost of $138,502.50.
