Carl Junction council OKs contract for park pavilion
Jan 06, 2013 (The Joplin Globe - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
CARL JUNCTION, Mo. -- Carl Junction City Council members last week approved a bid of $21,160 for replacing a pavilion that was destroyed by a fire in November.
The council reviewed two other bids, from Painter Construction and Burkhart Construction that came in at $21,945 and $22,616, respectively, before voting 6-0 to award the contract to L&M Construction, of Neosho.
The 22- by 36-foot pavilion will be built in Center Creek Park.
Ward 1 Councilman Sean Haase pointed out during the meeting that the bids did not include electricity for the pavilion.
"I think it would be beneficial if there was some kind of electricity," Haase said. "The insurance is covering the cost of the structure, and it might be better to at least look into it."
The council agreed to use $500 from its discretionary budget to add an outlet and light to the pavilion, rather than rebid the work.
The pavilion was destroyed by a juvenile on Thanksgiving.
Council members discussed during Thursday's meeting their plans to seek monetary restitution for the act.
Police Chief Delmar Haase told the council that because the culprit was a juvenile, the most the city could recover under state law would be $4,000.
THE CARL JUNCTION CITY COUNCIL will resume its regularly scheduled meetings at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the Carl Junction Community Center, 303 N. Main St.
