An Iuka company is the low bidder on an improvement project along Baldwyn-Ripley Road.

Supervisors approved a bid Monday for the State Aid funded project which includes drainage repairs and improvements along a section of County Road 6100 also known as Baldwyn-Ripley Road.

Parsons Earthworks of Iuka submitted the lowest bid received at $272,412.65. Two other bids were received – Century Construction and Realty of Tupelo at $291,641 and Ausbern Construction Company of Okolona at $537,823.

County Engineer Kent Geno said the project was estimated to cost around $514,000.

The board also voted Monday to approve an agreement with the Butler and Snow law firm to provide legal services for county redistricting. District lines in the county will have to be redrawn next year based on the data from the 2020 census. The process is expected to take approximately four to six months and will begin early next year.
