A bid of $146,950 to renovate City Hall was accepted by the Gerald Board of Aldermen last week.
Pohlmann Construction submitted the winning bid. The only other bidder, Sieve Construction, bid the job at $206,000.
Both bids included a new roof, new windows, a 49 feet by 28 feet addition to the east side of the building, new storage space, a break-room in the police department, and a general re-configuring of the building.
Ward 2 Alderman Keith Wehmeyer cast the only vote against the project.
