Suisun council approves senior center remodel bid
SUISUN CITY — A new look is coming to the Suisun Senior Center.
City Council members unanimously approved awarding the remodel contract Tuesday to Melnikov Construction. The company’s $462,400 bid includes improvements to the core center of the building, floors, lighting fixtures and dry rot repair.
The work is being paid for with funds from a Community Development Block Grant that was awarded in October 2010. The first phase, a new roof, was completed last year.
Center programs will be relocated during the remodel, which is expected to take 90 days.
In other action:
- Mayor Pete Sanchez returned four members to the city’s Planning Commission. Their terms expire in January 2017. Four members, including two who were already on the board, were appointed to the Parks and Recreation Commission.
- As part of its consent calendar, the council approved purchasing a Rake-O-Vac sweeper at the cost of about $35,000 with money from the Recycling Container Grant Funds.
- City Manager Suzanne Bragdon reported on the Dec. 28, 2012, DUI checkpoint in the city, noting that 753 cars were stopped. There was one DUI apprehension and one warrant arrest.
