The Cheektowaga Town Board will reject the initial bids it received in October for the disposal of the town’s solid waste and re-advertise for new bids at a regular meeting Monday in council chambers at Cheektowaga Town Hall, 3301 Broadway.

One of the unsuccessful bidders in the last process raised concerns at a meeting last month about the fairness of the process, explaining its belief that the successful bidder had submitted skewed figures that resulted in it being the lead bidder in the process.

The board then voted to table the measure.

Under the new resolution, sealed proposals for the new bidding process will be received by the town clerk on Dec. 12 for the acceptance of the town’s solid waste and disposal from 2013-2017.

The board also will consider various site plan applications for the Center for Hospice & Palliative Care at 225 Como Park Blvd., Save-A-Lot at 4144 Union Road and the Upstate Niagara Cooperative at 1717 Walden Ave.
