CAMANCHE — The city of Camanche has accepted the low bid submitted for the demolition of Garner Hall.
Camanche officials went out for a resubmission of bids for the demolition, with the city receiving bids from McManus Excavating and Larry Determan, Inc.
"We did go back out for resubmission of bids," Camanche City Administrator Andrew Kida said. "We asked for some different work to be done and it's a little more challenging now that the community center is up next to Garner Hall. So we wanted that reassessed."
Larry Determan, Inc., submitted the low bid at $27,500. The bid stated the owner will be responsible for any asbestos removal, which already has been done. The bid states Larry Determan, Inc., will be responsible for removal and disposal of all concrete foundation and demolition materials. All sewer and water will be capped at the property line. The owner is responsible for all other utility disconnects. Larry Determan, Inc., is also requesting a water source for dust control and assistance with temporary disconnect of the street light. The price includes the removal and salvage of Garner Hall signage for the city of Camanche Historical Society.
McManus Excavating Backhoe submitted a bid of $31,034.
Councilman Brent Brightman made a motion to award the bid to Larry Determan, Inc. The motion passed on a 4-0 vote. Councilwoman Amber Metzger was absent.
