Maintenance shed to be remodeled into bath house

The Glencoe City Council Monday night awarded a contract to Ryan Voss (RDV Construction) to remodel the former city maintenance shed at Oak Leaf Park into a bath house for the park’s expanded campground.
Voss’ bid was one of two received for the original plan to build a new bath house facility in the park. But those bids came in high, according to Mike Drew, city public works director of parks and streets.
Drew said the designs for the new campground are in place and that included a new bathhouse. But estimated costs were “way too high” for a new bath house, Drew said.
It was then suggested the former city shed be utilized by building shower facilities in the lower level of the building.
After the bids from Voss ($94,708) and Schatz Construction ($108,120) came in, Drew and the parks board also considered the alternate of in-floor heat at an additional cost of $2,500 from Voss and $4,900 from Schatz.
But Drew said the park board members looked at additional ways to trim costs and settled on a plan that included the bathhouse work plus the in-floor heating alternative at a cost of $83,710, with Voss getting the contract.
