Milwaukee-based Stark Asphalt Service Inc. made the apparent low bid on a village of Brown Deer street reconstruction project that was tied up in court for more than a year.

Stark’s bid was $2,418,063.79, according to JobTrac, The Daily Reporter’s online bidding database.

The village first solicited bids on the project in January 2012, and Advance Construction Inc., Green Bay, made the low bid of $2.36 million. That bid expired in June as the village’s lawsuit against a group of residents continued.

Brown Deer sued the residents after they balked at the village’s effort to rebuild Deerwood Drive, Ruth Place, River Lane and 42nd and 43rd streets.

Brown Deer rebid the project in March after Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rick Sankovitz decided the roads included in the design are public highways and ruled that the village could move forward.

Oak Creek-based C.W. Purpero Inc., Manitowoc-based Vinton Construction Co., Slinger-based Heartland Construction Inc. and Union Grove-based Willkomm Excavating & Grading Inc. also submitted bids. Willkomm made the apparent high bid at $2,861,771.25.
