Mitchell Library Bids Come In Higher Than Expected

Bids to expand and renovate the public library in Mitchell have come in slightly higher than expected.  The lowest bid for the project is about $2.3 million, about $123,000 over the estimate. Architect Larry Jirsa says the budget for new furniture can be adjusted to keep the project within the estimate.  The expansion project will include a new meeting room, a children’s reading area, a reference area, more storage space and a new circulation desk. The project is to be completed by September 2014.
