Salisbury City Council will be asked Tuesday to approve a $400,612 contract for RAM Development of Mooresville Inc. to install waterlines and other infrastructure in the Majolica and Harrison road areas annexed into the city in July 2007.
RAM was the low bidder among 19 companies, and its amount is below initial engineering estimates.
RAM is currently installing water and sewer improvements in the Old Mocksville Road annexation area of 2007.
Council meets at 4 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 217 S. Main St.
In other agenda items Tuesday, council will:
