Bella Vista (AR) City Council Amends Fire Station Contract

The city council voted unanimously to amend its contract to build a new Fire Station No. 3 at a guaranteed maximum price of $2.45 million.

According to a report from NWAOnline, the city council in Bella Vista, Arkansas, voted unanimously to amend its contract with Clinard Construction Management to build a new Fire Station No. 3 at a guaranteed maximum price of $2.45 million. In a previous contract, the price wasn’t previously determined.

Bella Vista Mayor Peter Christie emphasized the price is a maximum and the city is not guaranteed to spend this entire amount. During the construction for Fire Station No. 4, he said, the same construction management firm saved the city $58,000.

A breakdown included with the amendment broke the estimate down into categories, the largest portion being site construction, which was valued at $414,542, electrical at $357,436, and general requirements such as permits, bonds, labor, contingencies, and other expenses at $325,089.

Groundwork continues to be laid on the property. Mark Clinard with Clinard Construction said he expects the station to be completed on October 1.
