The members of the Cherokee County Park Board recently gathered in a Special Called Meeting to accept bids for two new additions at Cherokee Rock Village.
Board Member Dave Crum.
According to the bid opening during the Board’s April 9th meeting, the Comfort Station bid came from McKinney Construction Company of Centre – while the septic system bid came from Gully Construction.
Board President Scooter Howell stated that $200,000 had been set aside for those upgrades – but the total cost of the two projects came to over $36,000 more than had been allotted.
We asked Crum how the shortfall would be made up:
The Board’s monthly revenue is reportedly between $6.500 and $7,000.
Ladd Environmental Consultants, the engineering firm for the projects, said there will be a period of 120 days for the construction to be completed.
The next meeting of the Cherokee County Park Board is slated for this Wednesday (April 23rd) – at 1:00pm in their office on Main Street in Centre.
