The new Guthrie County Law Enforcement Center will have its sally port as originally planned following Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting.
The Supervisors discovered that they mistakenly approved the wrong alternate when they awarded the contractor bids for the project last week. They intended on approving the alternate for stair work when in reality they approved the alternate for a larger sally port, at a cost of $16,100. The stair alternate was $43,700. County Attorney Brenna Bird told the Supervisors that they couldn’t simply “take back” last week’s motion, and they decided they might as well leave that work included. The Board then approved to include the second alternate as initially desired. Excluding the alternates the project is estimated at about $9,429,876. The Board also agreed with project manager The Samuels Group to hold a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday, October 20th.
