BRANSON, Mo. – The Downtown Gateways signage, approved on its first reading, is now back to the drawing board after aldermen voted down the project on its final reading.
The city received only one bid for two signs to be built on Commercial Street for $523,149 – 40% percent higher than expected. The single bid came from Carson-Mitchell, the same firm that built the RecPlex.
Alderman Rick Todd says his decision to approve the signage didn’t set well with him:
Rick Todd H012 (:20) “…ready to go”
Aldermen stopped the project with the current bid with a vote of 5 no and one yes – the lone vote in favor of the project coming from Alderman Chris Bohinc
Chris Bohinc H013 (:14) “…have lower bids”
The board directed the engineering staff to re-bid the project.
