Lakeport City Council is expected to award a contract for upgrades to its city hall this week.
Bridges Construction of Lakeport will likely win the contract to provide Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant access to the City Hall administration and finance payment counter, to remodel office space for the Planning Department and to provide additional storage for the council chambers.
City Manager Margaret Silveira’s report to the council explained that the contractor was the low (and only) bidder for the project, at $187,860, Lake County News reported.
Originally the contractor submitted a $235,610 bid, but after working with the engineer the firm amended its bid, dropping it by $47,750. Amendments included changing construction to daytime operations.
Silveira said construction is estimated to start June.
