Police and Court Building Moves Ahead

At the Common Council Legal Committee meeting last Wednesday, city attorney Ken Dow reported that the contracts for the police and court building were ready for Council approval.

Dow revealed that one of the four original low bidders had withdrawn, but it seems the project will still be within the budget with the next higher bidder. There are four contracts: general construction, plumbing, HVAC, and electrical work. 

A special meeting of the Common Council has been called for March 7 at 6:30 to authorize the mayor to enter into the contracts. At that same meeting, the Council will consider an amendment to the zoning code to make hotels a conditionally permitted use in the Residential/Special Commercial (R-S-C) district located in the First Ward. The informal meeting of the Common Council will follow the special meeting.
