Scottville commission expected to approve city hall ADA contracting

December 16, 2013

SCOTTVILLE — Scottville’s 96-year-old city hall will be getting some much needed updating this coming year. In order for the city to qualify for any more grants or loans from the federal government, city hall must by Americans with Disabilities Act compliant.

The city commission will take action on bids for the project during its regular meeting tonight. City Manager Amy Williams is recommending commissioners approve the low bid of $32,950 from Broadsight Construction of Jenison. Williams said five bids were received with the high end at $58,983.

The project will include remodeling of the building’s bathrooms and front entrance.

After contracts are signed the contractor will have 90 days to complete the project, Williams said.

“This project will be somewhat disruptive to city hall while it is going on but we will do the best we can to minimize the disruptions,” Williams said. “Depending on when they get started and what work needs to be done in the commission room for the bathroom remodel, there is a chance we may need to re-locate one or two of the commission meetings, but I will know more about that once I speak with the contractor.”
