(Lander, Wyo.) – The City of Lander is taking the first step toward relocating the Lander Golf Course’s storage buildings that are needing to be moved for the construction of the Lander Community Center.
Public Works Director Mickey Simmons said the low bidder for pouring a concrete monolithic pad for one building and a footing only for the other building. The low bidder was CMP Concrete of Lander at $24,000. The other bidder was Ellis Concrete at a combined $25,883.05 for both projects.
The city council only requires formal bids for projects totaling more than $35,000. The council on Tuesday gave Simmons the leeway to hire either firm based on availability to complete the project soon.
Simmons said on Friday that he had hired CMP, with a starting date within 10 days.
This action comes after the council declined a $350,000 bid from Sehnert Systems Inc., the company in charge of the community center construction, for a full reconstruction of the golf course’s buildings. Read more about that mid-August meeting here.
