Town staff might go back to the drawing board when it comes to the Civic Center stage expansion project.
Capital Projects Coordinator Kim Moon is recommending rejecting two bids for the project - for $457,190 from Danson Construction and $543,110 from B's Construction - because they exceed available funding of $300,000.
Moon is recommending reducing the scope of the stage expansion, making it extend out deeper into the lawn. Staff also has proposed using a pre-fabricated roof structure, and scaling back electrical upgrades.
The stage expansion is part of the remodeling of the Civic Center to accommodate moving five departments, Moon indicated in a staff report.
Moon's recommendation will go before the Town Council, which will meet at 5:30 p.m. today in the library auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.
Also on the agenda are:
Life-saving award certificates.
Adoption of an ordinance changing the town code as it applies to filling council vacancies, council meeting locations, order of business and peddler license retention.

How About NOT!!
Instead of wasting money on a stage that will get used as much as the stage does now, which is about 3 times a year, and I have yet to see it fill up, how about concentrating on getting something in this town for the kids to do? Or how about finishing sidewalks, or fixing the streets? Quit wasting my tax dollars on this frivolous junk the town keeps building, ie: library, self portrait statues and ect...
