Second Sitework Bid

At this rate, the MVC will ship in 2025.

We've now got two sitework bids, and I've added the second one to the table below. The numbers are pretty close for the most part, except Contractor B is coming in way below on the backfill price. I need to find out if we're all talking about the same thing.

Also, I am going into the stump-grinding business.
