The topic of tires will continue at Alton City Hall in two weeks.  The Alton City Council Committee of the Whole laid over bids for car & truck tire service as well as service calls for tire work and heavy equipment tire service for the various city departments at last night’s meeting.  At least one alderman wants the council to take more time to research the bids.

D&D Tire Service of South Roxana submitted the low bid for both contracts.  Alderman Gary Fleming says Fred’s Towing, located near Salu Park, is a business that is located in and is currently serving the city.

D&D is located on Madison Avenue in South Roxana, and Fleming has concerns about their ability to get to the scene of a tire emergency promptly, should one arise, and also about some of the pricing submitted in the bid.
