The Edon Village Council accepted a bid for a waterline replacement project during its meeting Thursday evening.

The bid was accepted, but Heidi Bidwell, village fiscal officer, said Friday they still needed to sign the contracts through the Maumee Valley Planning Organization for the contractors.

Kyle Sherman Excavating, based in Perrysburg, had the winning bid, with $211,040.

“As soon as the weather’s fit I’m sure they’ll start the project,” Bidwell said. “That’s for the waterline replacement on Railroad and Franklin (streets).”

She was unsure the exact amount of waterline they were replacing.

Separately, Bidwell said, village employees were commended on their work removing snow and council was also informed that new water meter readers were installed.

“(That’s) for reading water meters through the radio and not having to input everything and go up to houses and everything,” she said.

Officials also launched a new website at the same address (, but some tweaking is still needed. If anyone finds any issues with the website, Bidwell encouraged them to reach out to the village.

Council also went into a closed, executive session to discuss personnel with no action taken upon returning to regular open session.
