Bids For Fire Station Come In Over Budget

Bids for Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue’s plan to build living quarters at its Columbia View Heights station so it can be manned came in over budget.  Bids were opened on Wednesday.  District Chief Bob Palmer says the low bid was about $75,000 over the estimated $450,000 cost, but he added the district will look at options to cover that cost, either through savings in the project or additional funding.  The district has $484,000 for the project provided by the City of The Dalles and Wasco County from enterprise zone funds being paid by Google for its new facility that is under construction.  Palmer says they hope to find a solution to take to the City and County by the end of November.  They must approve the district’s plans under the enterprise zone agreement.
