The bid accepted is a little over $2,000 less than the engineer's estímate which was $11,497.28. There were some funny things about the bids, some bidders charging the same for laying the pipe sixteen feet tinder ground that they charged for laying it eight. It will be noticed that the Port Huron firm which built the Liberty screet sewer, split in three pairs and members of it appnar in three of the firms bidding on the William street sewer. Mr. Schultz, one of the successful bidders, was the inason who built the flush tanks of the Liberty street sewer. The board will require a boud of $15,000 with a local bondsinan. The contract is to be let Monday if the firm provide the proper bond and work is expeuted to begin at once. Four miles of sewer will be built in this district. Sharp & Schultz promise to employ Ann Arbor help with the exception of ten men.
