United Steelworkers Local 7-00809 has submitted a bid for a city owned building in Boggs Industrial Park.
Warsaw Board of Public Works and Safety met this morning in regular session and board member Charlie Smith read the bid. The property is located at 420 Little League Drive and was formerly used by the Warsaw Parks Department. It is now vacant.
At a previous meeting the B.O.W. announced it was selling the property but would only entertain bids at the appraised value of $90,000. USW Local 7-00809 did bid the full price, but noted their bid is subjected to a building inspection and city water and sewage hookup will be available at no additional fee.
The board opted to table the bid.
In a matter regarding the new city hall, additional services contracts totaling $6,990 was approved in the absence of Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer. A total of $3,000 in additional compensation was requested from David Worthman of MechTec Consulting Services LLC. In a letter to Mary Ellen Rudisel-Jordan who is the architect for the project, Worthman says two existing site visits remaining on his initial contract will not be sufficient. The additional compensation will cover his costs of “attending bi-weekly meetings and observation, compliance for install, participation during start-up and owner training.”
The additional $3,990 is for additional work related to the second story balcony. A structural engineer had to be hired to assure the design steel for the balcony supports were sufficient. That total also included electrical and restroom design, third floor plumbing, alarm and security inspections.
Both additions were approved.
