GILLETTE, Wyo. — The Gillette City Council will consider a potential bid award to remodel the Council of Community Services’ administrative building, according to the meeting agenda for Oct. 3. 

If approved by the council, the bid will go to Hladky Construction in the amount of $350,087 to improve internet connectivity and telecommunication as well as to provide additional office spaces for the CCS campus on 4-J Road and Rohan Avenue, per the agenda. 

Currently, the CCS campus lacks a reliable intranet telephone system, preventing staff from transferring calls from one building to another within the campus, the council agenda states. The project will provide streamlined telephone capabilities as well as fiber-optic internet connectivity. 

“Further, the project will remodel the administration building, providing improved security, ADA accessibility, and additional office spaces,” the agenda says. 

Pending council approval, project construction is anticipated to begin this fall and is scheduled for completion in spring 2024, per the agenda. 

According to the bidding information provided in the agenda, there were two bids submitted for the project, with Hladky Construction offering a total bid that was approximately $60,000 less than PRC Inc.

The bid received from Hladky, while the low bid, is also under the budgeted amount for the project, according to the city.
