City Hall fungus still among us

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Chiefland city commissioners may have found a way out of a bidding contract to fix a still-festering mold problem at City Hall.

At the Jan. 14 meeting, four construction companies vying to fix the problem were ranked by staff for approval, yet commissioners declined to choose, hoping instead for more time to finagle a better deal. At Monday’s regular meeting, commissioners were presented with the same four options, though, by the end, they had unanimously agreed to both stall awarding the bid and call for a second opinion on an already-completed mold remediation plan.

“That’s just such a lot of money to put into that building …,” said Vice Mayor Teresa Barron at the prospect of having to pay about $65,000 to top-ranked bidder Dreyer’s Cleaning and Restoration, of Gainesville, to fix the problem.
