The Bowie City Council awarded several contracts last week for water wells and trucks.
Two well contracts were awarded to East Coast Well and Pump Co. The firm will receive $20,965 to repair the city's No. 4 water well, one of five that serve city homes.
The second contract, for $13,785, is to drill a new well at White Marsh Park. The well will serve the park's recreation fields and art center.
The council sold four used public works trucks and bought four new ones to replace them.
The city bought one truck from Central GMC for $8,668, using one of the used trucks as a trade-in, and three trucks from Stewart Motors, two for $15,583 using trade-ins and one for $18,358 without a trade-in. The city sold a used truck to Penn Motor Co. for $2,100.
The council also revised its contract with Pagliaro Construction Co., which is renovating parts of the Belair Mansion. The changes mostly cover the use of different materials than planned and will save the city $970, a city spokesman said.
The council also approved staff recommendations for changes in its application for Project Open Space funds.
The state appropriates the funds to counties, which in turn give some to municipalities to develop recreation facilities, the spokesman said.
Bowie's changes were prompted because Prince George's County is to receive $1.3 million instead of $1.7 million.
