“You just don’t know when you go out to bid,” Black said. “The second bidder could’ve made a mistake (or) put something in twice. It happens every day.”
Getting the new school project back in line with budget estimates is essential at this stage of the process, Black said.
“They don’t have a choice. They’ve got to get the estimated cost of the project close to their budget … so they don’t end up $5 or $6 million over a second time,” Black said.
Discussions will continue on the new school project at a special MVTHS Board meeting set for 4:30 p.m. today.
