Ludington considering repairing Stearns Park restrooms

March 17, 2013

LUDINGTON — The Ludington City Council is expected to approve a bid to renovate the Stearns Park north concession stand restrooms during its regular meeting Monday.

A low bid of $84,890 was received from Winberg Construction of Montague; Winberg submitted an additional bid of $15,900 to tile the walls in the restroom rather than painting the concrete block walls.

“Though the bids came in over budget, I believe it is important to complete this project due to the poor conditions of these restrooms,” City Manager John Shay wrote in a memo to the council. Shay said more people are using the restrooms because of a walkway that was installed last year. He said the city has received many complaints about the poor condition of the restrooms and that they are not Americans with Disabilities Act compliant.

The city allocated $68,000 for the project. Shay said because the bid came in over budget he is recommending that the tile work not be done and the walls be painted instead.

City Council meets at 6:30 p.m. at city hall.
