St. Joseph City Council Reviews Government Center Bids [AUDIO]

St. Joseph

ST. JOSEPH — The bid results for the St. Joseph Government Center came in less than expected. The council met Thursday night to review the results. Bidding opened on April 22nd.

The council had anticipated the cost to be around $4.4-million and $4.5-million. City Administrator Judy Weyrens says the bid came back at $4.2-million but this doesn’t mean they will necessarily move forward with building plans.
