continued The apparent low bidders for each of the five contracts were:
—General construction: James & Son Construction Co., Inc., of Skaneateles, $656,000
—Plumbing: Avolio Brothers, of Norwich, $92,505
—Geothermal: American Augur & Ditching Co., of Constantia, $29,480
—Mechanical: Tag Mechanical, of Syracuse, $132,000
—Knapp Electric, of Auburn, $143,200
The total cost of the lowest base bids for all five contracts is $1,053,185. The sale proceeds for the current village hall building at 46 E. Genesee St., which will be used to fund the renovations, was $830,000. The village has already received or is awaiting reply for a number of state and federal grants, however, to offset the cost of the project.
The village board will discuss the bids at an operations meeting scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, at village hall. Hubbard said he is hopeful that on that day the village will also receive a response from state officials about a major grant the village applied for.
