City, Rural Fire Board Award Bid for New Building

Less than two weeks after opening bids, the Elgin City Council Thursday night accepted a bid for construction of a new fire storage building.
On a three-to-one vote (Councilman Don Mackel voting ‘no’) the council accepted the low bid of $325,962 submitted by Wingate Companies dba Crafts, Inc. out of Norfolk to build the structure. Under the terms of the bid, completion of the building would be 120 days from the date of the awarding of the bid. In this case, 120 days would be towards the end of July 2012.
The cost of the fire storage building will be divided by the City of Elgin and the Rural Fire Board.
