Ida Grove council rejects city hall bid

The Ida Grove City Council rejected the lone bid it received to renovate city hall June 2.

The city received a base bid of $3,385,755 from Sande Construction. The alternate bids for additions came in at $267,754 and deductions in the amount of $10,000. 

Jerry Purdy of the Farnsworth Group, the architect for the project, noted there were additional companies planning to bid the project, but due to the project being substantially over budget, decided not to submit bids. Purdy originally had listed an estimated cost for the renovation in the area of $1.5 million.
