Highlands seeks new bids for clock tower restoration
Highlands School District is again seeking bids to restore the clock tower at the district’s elementary school in Tarentum.
The school board rejected the two bids the district received in May for the masonry restoration at Highlands Elementary School, and approved re-bidding the project.
A third bid had been rejected when it was delivered a few minutes after the deadline.
The district wants to repair the clock tower’s masonry, fix its leaking roof and replace the broken clock.
Sealed bids for a single masonry restoration construction contract are due by 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 23. A pre-bid meeting has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 16 at Highlands Elementary School.
VEBH Architects is preparing the project’s specifications.
In March, businessman John Greco Jr. and his wife, Sally Greco, of Lower Burrell donated $25,000 to the district for the work on the clock tower. Greco, owner of P.G. Greco Sons and JG’s Tarentum Station Grille, made the donation in honor of his parents, John and Pauline Greco.
