Bid Approved For Goderich Courthouse Park Performance Stage
Goderich Councillors have approved the most recent bid on the performance stage on the Courthouse Square.
Goderich Re-Build Advisory Committee Chair and Deputy Mayor John Grace says he was very disappointed when the lowest tender for the project came in at roughly$100,000 over the budgeted cost. But Grace told council last week they were able to negotiate a better deal with the lowest bidder by making a few minor adjustments.
Grace points out the bid that council approved last Monday was for $450,000 plus architectural fees of $46,000. Grace adds they were able to develop significant community partnerships through the process and the performance stage is the final piece of the puzzle that is the Courthouse Park so it was extremely important they get it right.
He also points out the performance stage will attract performers and audiences to the Courthouse Park. Grace adds he expects construction on the performance stage to start within a month.
