BAY ST. LOUIS — Officials have delayed for at least two weeks a decision on awarding a contract for a $21 million marina and harbor project.
The Sea Coast Echo reports the bids for the harbor project were accepted six weeks ago. The low bidder was Gill’s Crane and Dozer Service of Slidell, La., with a bid of $21.6 million, which was about $1 million more than the city was expecting.
Mayor Les Fillingame says the city allocated about $20.5 million for the project. He says the remainder would come from adjustments to the project’s budget. He says one final modification needed to be done.
The project consists of a 168-slip harbor/marina and rebuilding the Jimmy Rutherford Pier. Construction is expected to take about 18 months.
