The St. Francois County Commission had several items of business to approve during their regular session Tuesday morning (June 15) at the courthouse annex.
The commission agreed to hire SFC Engineering for engineering design for work to be done on the county jail.
Brian Briley, maintenance supervisor, came before the commission with bids for replacement windows for the courthouse.
“I would like to go with Brockmiller Construction for $186,590,” he said. “It’s a local company, [using] prehung windows like we have in this building. The other ones were quite a lot of difference.”
County Clerk Kevin Engler asked how much the other bids were for.
Briley answered, “The highest bid was $368,000. The next bid was residential windows, one option was $198,000 and another option was $169,000.”
County Auditor Louie Seiberlich asked, “I’m not sure it was apples to apples, was it Brian?”
Briley answered, “No, the cheaper ones were not apples to apples.”
Presiding Commissioner Harold Gallaher asked when the windows would be done.
Briley stated 10 to 12 weeks, once they received the windows. “We’ll have to schedule with the courts to accommodate them.”
