Selectmen award bid for Forbes Municipal Building renovations
By Melanie Petrucci, Contributing Writer
Westborough – At the Board of Selectmen’s April 11 meeting, Westborough Town Manager Jim Malloy recommended that the board approve the bid for the Forbes Municipal Building Renovation Project to Five Star Building Corporation in the amount of $10,516,168 – about a $1,000,000 less than expected.
This figure includes the base bid and three alternate items: modifications to the sally port, restroom renovations and a carport canopy, which were then added to the project.
After extensive review by and a vote from the Municipal Building Committee April 5, Five Star Building Corp. not only came in with the lowest bid but it has a very favorable rating of 95 with the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM.)
The motion was made and seconded to award the bid to Five Star Building Corporation subject to DCAMM statement’s updates accuracy. Selectman Ian Johnson questioned the vetting of Five Star and was assured by Malloy that proper and thorough vetting was undertaken. The bid was awarded unanimously.
