City puts off decision on mold contractor

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Chiefland City Commission has put off awarding a bid on mold remediation services for the City Hall until it can clarify some costs in the bids submitted by four contractors on Jan. 8.
Black mold, which poses a health threat, was discovered in the city manager's office in September. Further inspections showed the city needed to take action to eradicate the mold in the ventilation system and building located on East Park Avenue.
 Three weeks ago the city staff moved out of the building and relocated to the Building Department building on North Main Street.
The city staff ranked the four in the following order:
• Dreyer's Cleaning & Restoration, 322 points, base bid $62,414.53 plus $9.87 per linear foot for duct replacement;
• J&L Construction, 231 points, base bid $77,100, plus $45-$176 per linear foot based on duct size;
• Slack Construction, 231 points, base bid $91,770, plus $18 per linear foot for duct replacement; and
• JTN Construction and Maintenance, 157 points, base bid $39,255, and $100 for duct replacement.
