Corinth contractor wins bid to build Urchin field house
A Corinth-based contractor won the bid to construct a field house for the East Union Urchins football team.
C.I.G. Contractors, Inc. placed a base bid of $619,900 to construct the field house. The company’s bid was the lowest among five opened in early January. Under state law, the county school district was required to accept the lowest bid, so long as it met all specifications.
Union County Superintendent Ken Basil said the school district will open bids later this month on lighting for the field.
The project continues work that began in the fall, including dirt work to the future field, across Highway 9 from East Union Attendance Center. Architecture firm Shafer & Associates of Starkville is overseeing the project.
The board said it hopes to have the field ready for play when football season starts next school year.
