Ambulance District Opens Bids On Building Addition

Architect Steve Deckard of Keystone Architects, Marshfield, opened sealed bids last Thursday afternoon for a building addition at the district’s ambulance station in Ava. Two bids were submitted, and both came in well above the projected cost of the project. The board of the Ava Area Ambulance District has not met at this time to act on the bids, and in the meantime the architect is negotiating with the apparent low bidder to see if the cost can be brought more in line with preliminary projections. The board is expected to hold a special meeting this week to formally reject all bids and authorize rebidding the project
