Williamsport Regional Airport (KIPT) authority to review bids for fuel farm project

The Williamsport Municipal Airport Authority opened three bids ranging from $985,322 to $1.08 million for the second phase of its fuel farm relocation project at a special meeting Thursday.

The project includes a new fueling system and tank installation, which the authority’s engineers projected at $1,074,250. The project was bid out earlier in the year but did not receive responses at that time.

Three companies responded to the latest ad.

The companies and their totals were: Beavers Petroleum Equipment and Alternate Fuels, $1,084,951; Petroleum Technical Services LLC, $1,019,947; and the Fourth River Company, $985,322.

Vince Decario, of L.R. Kimball, lead engineer, and the state Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Aviation will further review the bids and make a recommendation to be voted on at the authority’s next meeting, June 14, said Christopher Logue, chairman.

In other business, the authority voted to go with Baker Tilly Virchow Krause LLP, which provides auditing services for Lycoming County, for its state-mandated audit, pending review of pricing.

“Our existing auditor, unfortunately, has run into a bit of a dilemma and is unable to perform our audit this year,” said Thomas Hart, airport executive director. “We have reached out to the county’s auditor to give us pricing.”
