The Springfield City Council held its monthly meeting last Tuesday at City Hall, where it awarded asphalt, concrete and concession contracts for the next year.

The council named Nally and Haydon Surfacing LLC the winning bidder for the asphalt contract, while Irving Materials Inc. (IMI) was named as the city’s concrete provider.

Concessions at Idle Hour Park for 2013 were also up for bid with the Springfield Lions Club placing the top proposal according to a consensus vote by the council.

The city also voted unanimously to agree to a raise in the lease agreement with Adelphia/Time Warner. The lease will increase from $250 to $320.

Mayor John Cecconi appointed the budget committee for the 2013-14 fiscal year last week. Cecconi named council members Lisa Haydon, Brooke Coulter and Willie Ellery to the committee.
Finally, the council unanimously approved a $500 grant request for the American Red Cross.
The next city council meeting is scheduled for April 9 at 5:30 at City Hall.
