The vote was taken at a special meeting of the board at 7:30 am today.

Phil Jones of Nabholz said the bidding was very competitive and Nabholz was pleased with the quality of the bids received. Jones added that the sub-contractors also offered additional value management ideas, which could help lower costs.

80% of the bid packages went to Arkansas companies, and 170 bids were received.

Bottom line total cost of the total project remains $95,000,000.
