Warren County Schools may save tens of thousands of dollars thanks to rebidding the demolition and restoration project of the WCMS walkways.“That’s around $60,000 less than the estimated price,” said School Board member Helen Martin of the revelation made by Allen Hill of Upland Design which is coordinating the project. “That’s a big difference.”Upland had estimated the combination of demolishing the largest walkway (the one closest to the football field) and servicing the other two bridges would cost around $158,000. The School Board was hit with a case of sticker shock during its last meeting when learning only Tri-State had bid and its bid was $181,000.
