Contractor chosen for Mt. Lebanon pool work
Mt. Lebanon commissioners awarded a $1.38 million contract for renovations to its swimming pool and bath house this week, allowing the project to be finished by mid-June.
Commissioners approved the contract for general construction and some drainage work to Clairton-based DiMarco Construction Co., the lowest of five bidders in the second round of bids for the contract. The first round of bids was dropped in early October after a dispute over a last-minute change in one bid led to a lawsuit.
With the plumbing, heating and electrical contracts included, the renovation project should cost about $3.73 million, said Mt. Lebanon Recreation Director David Donnellan.
The municipality is paying for the project with a $4.5 million bond, the remainder of which will be kept as a contingency fund in case the pool project costs go up during construction. Once the project is done, the unspent bond money could go to other recreation projects.
