ASAPH - The dirt road behind the Tokishi building in Charleston Township, known as the Community Services road, will be paved once Tioga County commissioners accept one of the two bids submitted Tuesday.
The commissioners met at the Shippen Township building here for their monthly "on the road" meeting, and opened the two bids, one from Miller Asphalt, of Williamsport, for $27,777 and the other from Dycon, of Pine City, N.Y. for $43,225.
They tabled the two bids for further review and likely will accept one of them at their next meeting in Wellsboro June 12.
