BOUNTIFUL — City leaders have approved a water line contract for the 2013 year.

In a special meeting, city council members voted to award the 2013 water contract to Kapp Construction for $729,838.

The action came a week after the council had voted to award the bid to another company in a regular council meeting, despite the fact Kapp was the low bidder of five companies seeking the contract.

Council members originally voted to award the contract to M.C. Green for $22,000 more than what Kapp bid for the work, citing their comfort level in working with a company the city had dealt with before.

Officials then met in executive session in a special council meeting and voted after that meeting to award the bid to Kapp.
