City hall bid goes to local company


A job of replacing windows and doors at Electric City Hall was awarded to DWK Fowler Construction, a decision made by the council last Tuesday night.

The award teetered between two bids and was awarded to DWK Fowler, a local company, after council members nixed adding a handicapped-accessible door to the project.

Fowler’s bid of $11,588.48 beat out one by Raven Glass, out of Wenatchee. That bid was $11,976.90.

The project calls for seven new energy-efficient windows and two new doors, and is part of a long-range plan to remodel city hall. This is the last major part of the overhaul, according to city Clerk Russell Powers.

The council looked at this a month ago, but the two firms had bid on different types of windows. In an attempt to get the two firms bidding on the same type of products, the council asked them to go back to the drawing board and review their bids.

The remodeling of city hall effort started under former mayor Jerry Sands and has systematically continued.

Powers said there might still be some countertops replaced, but the major parts of the remodeling will be over with the addition of the windows and doors.
