He explained that it’s going to cost the City more that it’s going to make to maintain it and provided the Board with information from Pineville and the cost to maintain their community Building. Mr. Hutchison noted he felt the funds would be better spent hiring another officer than being spent re-building the community building.

The Board then opened the first bid from Widener Concrete. The 70×40 footing as drawn and described in bid pack and slab addition as drawn for $7850.00.
