The Door County Property and Finance committees have named their choice to lead the construction of the new senior center and central ambulance station. De Pere-based IEI Contractors were chosen with a bid of $8.1 million, which was about $900,000 less than originally budgeted. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says pending board approval, the project could start as soon as next month.
Pabich believes the project could be completed and ready for occupancy by this time next year. The Door County Board will meet next Tuesday to approve the contracts and financing for the project. The supervisors will also vote on the appointment of Laura Wotachek to the vacant seat on the board recently held by the late Richard Haines.
