WINNING BIDDER BACKS OUT

 

For the first time in recent memory or maybe ever, the winning bidder for a construction contract for the City of Greenville will be forfeiting their five thousand dollar bond and not doing the project. According to City Manager Dave Willey, LRB Construction was unable to fulfill the bid. According to Willey, LRB made an arithmetic error on the bid and would have lost more than the five thousand had they built the city’s new salt dome.

 

Willey negotiated a deal with another bidder, Park Lane Construction, to construct the salt dome. The city council voted three to one to accept the new bid. City Councilman Matt Roadman wanted to hold off the construction project until the city could sell some surplus real estate.
