Trumbull County Fair Board approves restrooms bid

BAZETTA — The Trumbull County Fair Board has approved the only qualifying bid for construction work on new fairgrounds restrooms.

The bid of $259,780 by CS Contracting of Vienna was approved last week. Fair board officials said other bids were rejected because they exceeded the 10 percent benchmark price for the project.

Board members said the staff attorney was reviewing the contract before it can be signed and construction can begin. The 30-by-60-foot facility will include a total of 14 toilets and stalls, five urinals and eight showers in the men’s and women’s restrooms, all meeting the standards of the American With Disabilities Act.

The project funding will include a $43,400 local match from the 2016-17 county capital improvement money, a $50,000 grant and the rest will come from the fair board.
