Godfrey is seeking a PEP Grant through Madison County to help fund the construction of a new restroom facility at Glazebrook Park. Eight contractors attended a pre-bid meeting last month, and bids were opened earlier this week. Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick was pleased when the envelopes were opened.
The winning bid was from Jun Construction at $289,000, well under the estimate of $350,000. He says this is a unique project for the area.
He hopes for a ground breaking on the project in April, in anticipation of opening in time for ball season this year.
