Two projects happening at City Central

Ponca City Now - May 18, 2018 10:46 am

Two City Central projects are getting ready to get underway, according to David J. Myers, Executive Director of the Ponca City Development Authority.
The first project is a washing and sealing project to clean up the outside, repair cracks and joints and seal the building to protect it.
Ponca City Development Authority had hoped to roll this out earlier, Myers said, but a March solicitation for bids, aimed exclusively at local companies, did not produce any local bids.
“As a result, the bids were reopened to the outside world,” he said. “PCDA then received two bids for the project, one from a Kansas company and one from JP Industrial of Edmond. The bid from JP Industrial was $239 less than the Kansas company.”
The bigger rehabilitation project had two local bids, one from Rick Scott Construction and one from Kyler Construction. Bids from the two companies ranged from $1,881,200 to $1,890,000.
Since both are outstanding local companies, PCDA accepted the lowest bid by Kyler Construction, in compliance with the EDA grant rule to take the lowest bid. The low bidder also was recommended by the architect, Myers said.
“The washing project will be more visible and both projects should roll out in June, with total completion early next year,”  Myers said.
