Three contracts for Clinton’s new swim complex in Jaycee Park were approved by the City Council in a recent special meeting, and construction was scheduled to begin this week, City Manager Roger Houck said.
Although Houck was out of town on vacation, he said the council voted to give the contracts to the three lowest bidders in his absence, and, “They all say they’re ready to get started.”
DWR Aquatics, based in Vonore, Tenn., had the low bid on the new outdoor pool, at $573,000, and will remove the old pool and construct the new, smaller one, Houck said.
There are two other contracts -- one for a new splash pad, and another to renovate the swim complex building.
Low bidders were Thomas Hicks Construction of Clinton, $791,000, for the pool building; and Classic Pools & Spas, $278,675, for the splash pad, Houck said.
The project was divided into three separate requests for bids after the city received no bids for the entire project as one contract.
