Tonight, the Redmond City Council will be asked to accept a bid to build a new public works administration building. The plan is to build it on the site of the old 84 Lumber site. Mayor George Endicott says the depressed economy has forced contractors to submit extremely competitive bids: “We opened the bids and the bids with the expanded work is $1.6 [million]. It's about a half million dollars under what we had anticipated.” Endicott says the money would be used to remodel an existing 4100 square foot building and construct a new 8300 square foot facility. Kirby Nagelhaut Construction is the apparent low bidder and the contract would require construction to be completed by October of this year.
