BURLEY • Cassia County officials received 10 construction bids on the county’s new judicial complex this week.
The base bids ranged from $1.6 million to $2.1 million and included several alternatives for upgrades.
Cassia County Clerk Joe Larsen said county commissioner’s deferred making a decision on which bid to accept until further review.
The decision will likely be made during the commissioners’ business meeting on Monday.
“The bids came in really well,” Larsen said. “And that should allow us some latitude to do some other things as well.”
But, one of the companies, Harris General Contractor — which submitted the lowest bid — failed to complete all the needed documents and was disqualified.
The second-lowest base bid was submitted by Starr Corporation at $1.7 million.
Once a company’s bid is accepted, the contract calls for work to begin in January with completion in late summer 2013, Larsen said.
Some additional items will includealternative upgrades, as well as landscaping and alterations to the roof and parking area.
Larsen said the building, an old grocery store located on the corner of Overland Avenue and 16th Street, is structurally sound.
The 16,000-square-foot building was purchased by the county for $600,000.
