WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – Wausau's board of public works has picked a Neenah contractor to rebuild the city square downtown.

Miron Construction had the lowest qualified bid out of four bid proposals, said public works director Brad Marquardt. They came in with a bid of $779,504.70. Other bidders that qualified included Norcon Corporation of Schofield, Janke Contractors of Athens, and Colt Construction Services of Waukesha.

“We have confidence that they'll do a good job in the project,” Marquardt said.

The city and the company will now finalize the contract documents and hold a pre-construction meeting before work can begin to add a permanent event stage, an interactive water fountain and other landscaping on the 400 block of Third Street.

City crews began preparing the site two weeks ago by removing sidewalk and dirt. Some preliminary work remains to be done before the contractor can begin work.

The city also plans to re-bid the contract soon for the event stage lighting and sound system. Even though the stage may be one of the last things to be put up, the contractor has to know how much the lights and sound equipment will weigh as they build the stage canopy. The contract for those items had initially come in $100,000 over budget.
