McPherson City Commissioners Appoint General Contractor for New Fire Station Construction

MCPHERSON, Kan. – A general contractor has been selected for the new McPherson Fire station to be constructed on North Main across from the Grant Sports Complex.

Following a review of two detailed scope and budget presentations, a review committee recommended, and City Commissioners Tuesday approved, the selection of Hutton Construction as general contractor.  Several companies had responded to a request for proposals, and the committee received detailed presentations from Hutton and McCown-Gordon.

Approval was also given for payment to Feld Fire for the annual inspection and flow test of all fire department air packs, which are required by OSHA. One air pack was taken out of service as a result of the inspection.

Intersection Reopening

Public Works Director Jeff Woodard reported that the Kansas Avenue-Old 81 Bypass intersection is expected to reopen shortly, perhaps as soon as the end of this week.

Work is also basically complete on the North Front Street extension, although that project won’t be turned over to the city until after the first of the year to allow the contractor to complete one item along the street.
