Norwell: Officials accept bid to construct new police station

Pin It

Norwell selectmen unanimously voted to accept Mill City Construction as the lower of just two bidders vying for the contract to build a new police station, as an addition to the existing fire station on Washington Street.

 The bid, coming in at $4.7 million, is about $200,000 more than selectmen originally anticipated.

Owner Project Manager Rick Pomroy said, “We had two general contractor bids; Mill City construction who is our low bidder at $4,798,718 and the second bidder GBW Inc. was our high bidder at $4,862,435. Our recommendation, pending a successful town meeting, is to accept the low bid and start construction.”

The bid comes just in time for Norwell Special Town Meeting Monday night and a $5.2 million article to fund the police station project.

However, an additional funding source will be required for $284,000 dollars in equipment technology.
