Mayor's Message, Feb. 20 Newsletter:
The City met with Cain Center Construction Manager-at Risk Berry and Clay this week to go over initial bids for the project.
Councilman Ed McCain, City Manager Elizabeth Borstad, Director of Finance Mandie Quigg and I met at City Hall with Eric Berry from Berry and Clay.
I was happy with this round of bids, which were much more in line with the project budget than what we received early in the process.
Planning for this Cain Center rehabilitation has been complicated, but along the way we have been able to reduce the projected cost to taxpayers from about $6.5 million down to $2.5 million.
We still have to sharpen our pencils to get the overall cost down a little bit, but if all goes well the City Council will review the bids during its March meeting and construction could begin on the Cain Center in April.
This is one groundbreaking I am really looking forward to.
Thanks for reading,
Mayor Monte Montgomery
