Resolution to Approve a Construction Contract with Fonson Company, Inc. for the 2023 Miscellaneous Utility Projects ($4,203,293.63)
Attached for your review and approval, please find a resolution to approve a construction contract between the City of Ann Arbor and Fonson Company, Inc. in the amount of $ $4,203,293.63 for the 2023 Miscellaneous Utility Projects (RFP 23-05).
