Portland-based Riedel International Inc., the lowest bidder among six firms competing for the pier contract, says it can complete the project for $8.59 million. The next lowest proposal the city received was $11.39 million. The City Council is scheduled to decide Aug.

The City Council has voted unanimously to accept a low bid of $8.6 million for construction of a new municipal pier. The old pier is scheduled to be torn down in early September, and construction of the new one is expected to start in November. The council's acceptance of the low bid late Monday night came amid criticism from unsuccessful bidders for the project who claimed that the low bidder had not acted fairly.

Despite an unexpectedly low bid of $8.6 million for construction of a new municipal pier, the city is still $1.5 million short of what it needs to complete the project, a city official told the City Council on Monday night. City Administrator Michael T. Uberuaga said the shortfall stems from the city's loss of $1.5 million from the anticipated sale of surplus land in Irby Park. He said a proposed construction contract with a commercial firm to purchase the land has fallen through.

Although none of the concrete debris from the demolished Municipal Pier is suitable for a planned offshore fishing reef, an estimated 2,500 tons of rubble has been recycled rather than dumped into a landfill, as city officials had previously reported. The city will not receive any portion of the revenue from the recycled concrete, but the tons of reused material will greatly help the city's efforts to meet state recycling requirements, City Engineer Robert Eichblatt said Monday.

Nobody said it would be easy. But city officials and volunteer fund-raisers on Tuesday night said they never expected all the problems that emerged as they tried to raise money for a new pier. Among other things, the fund-raising began just as the national recession set in. "I never got so tired in my life of hearing the word 'no,' " said Robert L. Mayer, co-chairman of the citizens' group that tried to raise $2.5 million in private donations for the pier. "But we didn't give up."

Jim Silva, 47, a longtime high school teacher, is the city's new mayor. Silva, who succeeds Mayor Peter M. Green, was elected Monday night to the yearlong job. "My two primary goals are to get the city's new pier completed and to balance the budget for next year," Silva said in an interview. Councilwoman Grace Winchell, 54, was elected mayor pro tem, which means she will automatically be elected mayor in December, 1992, when Silva's term ends under a law passed by the City Council this year.

City officials love to brag about it. "It's a project that's staying on time and on budget," exulted City Engineer Bob Eichblatt. Added a beaming Mayor Peter M. Green: "We're very pleased." The object of the bragging is the city's new $11.7-million pier, currently under construction. As summer draws to a close, the outline of the nascent pier is now more than a skeleton. New concrete beams and pilings rise clean and white from the roiling ocean waters.
