Commission approves builder for storage facility

Published 4:00am Monday, June 3, 2013

Commissioners chose a builder Monday night to handle construction of a new records storage facility near the Elmore County Judicial Complex.
Montgomery-based Construction One builders turned in the low bid at $304,621. The bid included a base price of $247,221 and two alternates. The alternates include metal shelving and a vertical lift to move boxes up and down, at prices around $30,000 each.
Construction One had the low bid, “whether the alternates were added or not,” said project manager Ed Brummal of PWBA architecture firm.
The records storage facility will be constructed as an addition to the existing Emergency Management Agency storage facility near the Elmore County Judicial Complex.
In other business, the commission:
•Approved the city of Wetumpka to use the courthouse veranda for the city’s Fourth of July celebration.
•Approved the job description for the position of facilities manager to oversee maintenance and repair duties at the county courthouse and other facilities.
•Approved the transfer of more than $58,000 in excess funds from the 2010 tax sale into general funds. State law allows excess funds from the tax sale to be shifted to the county’s operations fund after three years. Those seeking to claim the funds left over after delinquent property taxes are paid may apply with the commission.
•Approved a proclamation praising the outreach efforts of the Rev. Marcus D. Collins of Lake Elam Baptist Church.
•Approved a new lease for Xerox copy machines at the sheriff’s department, which commissioners said would save Sheriff Bill Franklin more than $300 per month.
•Ratified Wetumpka City Councilman Kevin Robbins’s appointment to the Elmore County Emergency Medical Services Board.
