Gulf Stream: News briefs

Bids produce sticker shock — The lowest bid for road and drainage work in the Core District came in at $13 million, or $2 million more than expected. Jockey Prinyavivatkul of Baxter & Woodman Consulting Engineers said he would talk to the two bidders to see why the prices were high. Town commissioners said they may rebid the work. Construction has been planned to start in January or February.

Crew damages Australian pines — More than a dozen of the town’s prized Australian pines along State Road A1A were damaged by a construction crew. An arborist was called in, and the owner of 2817 N. Ocean Blvd. will pay $5,250 to save the trees, Assistant Town Manager Trey Nazzaro said.

Another camera to keep eye on cars — The town is installing a license-plate recognition camera at Pelican Lane and State Road A1A to monitor vehicles entering Gulf Stream from the south. It joins six LPRs that were put in earlier this year.
