The Wilmington City Council held a special meeting on Friday morning. Council considered a resolution awarding a construction contract for another portion of the Cross City Trail. The resolution passed unanimously.
The project is funded through federal stimulus dollars and the contract had to be awarded by Dec. 31. Failure to meet this deadline would have resulted in the loss of approximately $16 million in federal stimulus money.
The bids for the project came in after City Council had their one and only regular meeting for this month, which is why a special meeting was held.
