Local preference favors MJ Construction on third project

By Sean Ryan

MJ Construction Inc., which has won two Milwaukee contracts because of the city’s local bidder preference, may win a third with a bid on a sewer project this week.

The Milwaukee Department of Public Works on Wednesday recommended Milwaukee-based MJ be awarded a $547,633 sewer contract even though the company was not the low bidder. MJ’s bid fell within the city’s 5 percent price preference for local bidders and did not exceed the $25,000 limit.

The low bid on the project is a $538,222 offer from American Sewer Services Inc., a Rubicon-based builder that has already lost one contract to the MJ because of the local preference. American Sewer was the low bidder on a $1.2 million contract that was awarded to MJ this week because of the local preference.

United Sewer and Water Inc., Menomonee Falls, also outbid MJ with a $544,940 proposal. The city estimated the project would cost $800,000.
