Vote NO on this election!

Another school vote for millage will be called for in the near future.

Bay de Noc Community College will be calling for a vote for additional millage shortly…

Before a consideration is given for a ‘yes’ vote

– voters should demand of the college administration and the board of trustees,

to answer the question of why the recently awarded bid for remodeling of the nursing lab/lecture facilities

was granted to a lower Michigan concern:

DCC Construction/Antler Construction, LLC, 9100 Lapeer Road, Suite A, Davison Mi 48823?

This lower Michigan construction company’s bid was in the amount of $897.000.00.

This amount was a full $71,000.00 HIGHER than a local bidder,

local taxpayer, local employer, and college neighbor,

Roy Ness Contracting & Sales, Inc., 1801 North Lincoln Road, Escanaba Mi 49829.

The Escanaba contractor’s bid was $826.000.00, a total of $71,000.00 under and the lowest bidder of six contrator’s who furnished bids for the project.

Taxpayers, local workers and the community would have been better served,

by awarding the construction work to the lowest bidder, a Delta County firm, with Delta County residents supplying the labor.

Residents and taxpayers should challenge the administration and the board of trustees at Bay College’s upcoming millage election by voting “NO”.

Out of six companies bidding,

five (5) were from the Upper Peninsula,

but the contract was awarded to the sixth bidder, a lower Michigan firm with a $71,000.00 higher bid.

Vote NO on this, Bay's call for additional millage!
