An Iowa City flood-restoration project is still seeking bids.

The Department of Parks and Recreation has recommended that the Iowa City City Council reject all bids so far submitted.

The bids received were from Iowa State Contractors at $437,963.78, L.L. Pelling at $655,095.13, and Engineer’s Estimate at $407,651.75.

The project is budgeted for $409,000.

While details have yet to be fully determined, the phase follows recent action taken to recover a portion of flood-prone property near City Park.

Phase one includes landscaping of Normandy Drive and the surrounding area, constructing a parking lot for the Ashton House, installing a nature playground in City Park adjacent to the area, installing a connecting trail from Rocky Shore Drive to Normandy Drive, and removing soil.

Iowa City City Council will vote on the resolution at its upcoming meeting, Oct. 15.
