REVIEW AND NEGOTIATION OF PAVILLION PLAN REVISIONS
Discussion was opened regarding options and alternatives to the bid submitted, for the Veteran’s Memorial Park Pavilion, by Sinopoli Construction. The first option of change could be to substitute pressure treated wood instead of steel for the railings. This would lower cost by $9,000. Eliminating bathroom and electrical fixtures at this time would reduce expenditures. Rough plumbing would be completed. However not completed with fixtures. Reducing the number of bathrooms would also be a cost savings. Painting of the bathrooms and block fill could be completed at a later date. The subject of a 100 amp service or a 200 amp service was also discussed. The inside doors could be eliminated until finish work is completed. Construction sequence and costs could be arranged as project is started according to weather.
