RIPLEY – Two contracts for site improvements on county-owned property in Blue Mountain that formerly housed Benchcraft has attracted a number of bidders.
The property is being prepared to house a subsidiary of Big M Transport, Diesel Logistics, and seven contractors bid for the work that includes an access road and parking lot. A second contract for building improvements at the same property attracted four bidders. All bids were taken under advisement to be reviewed by Cook Coggin Engineers.
The property currently has several other businesses, including a Dirt Cheap distribution center and retail store, and the Tippah County Board of Supervisors is expected to award the contracts at Monday’s regular meeting.
