Rebidding of new high school carries risk

MVTHS officials hope to develop strategies to get better bids

MT. VERNON — Rebidding construction for the new proposed Mt. Vernon Township High School carries the risk of receiving even higher bids this time around, due to potentially rising labor and material costs.

However, MVTHS officials say they are developing strategies to help make the bidders more comfortable so they might submit lower estimates. These strategies include changing how the bids are structured, expanding the bidding field, and altering the bidding and construction timelines.
