Perry Public Beach Delayed by Projected Bids, Excessive Costs
WALKER RD. PERRY NY 9/3/19 --- Bill Price of SWBR, the architectural firm in charge of the Village Improvement Project, attended the Tuesday evening Village Board meeting to provide updated information on bids for the project. Mr. Price reported that SWBR was disappointed both with the number of bids and the amount of the bids as compared with the original estimates.
M. Syberg of the Perry Herald reported that "SWBR received just one bid for electrical work (which was five times the estimate). Four bids for plumbing were received of which two were exponentially high and two were more reasonable."
Contractors told Price that they might have better luck if SWBR put the job back out for bids in the winter when the companies aren't as busy. The other alternative would be to "value engineer" the project in order to bring down the costs. The board approved intent to award the bid to the contracting firm Camco, contingent upon reduced costs.
