Two bids submitted for phase one of the Corn Palace renovation project last week were higher than expected. The Mitchell City Council will discuss those bids at Monday night’s meeting, which begins at 7:30 at City Hall in downtown Mitchell. Mueller Lumber submitted the low bid of 3.95 million dollars. Puetz Corporation’s bid was 4.27 million dollars. The budget for phase one is 4.2 million dollars. Alternate bids, which would include changes from the original plan that would lower the cost, were also submitted. Prior to the regular council meeting, The Public Health and Safety Committee, Traffic Committee, and Finance Committee will meet. Committee meetings are scheduled to begin at 7 pm.
