  1. Award of bid for plumbing and handicap accessible project for Dow Towers

Ms. Unowsky provided an overview of a plumbing and handicap/wheelchair accessibility project at Dow Towers. The project had to be scaled back due to construction bids coming in higher than estimated. Ms. Unowsky proposed removing common area improvements and some of the handicap units, but completing the remodeling of bathrooms and one, fully-accessible unit through use of additional MHFA and HRA reserve funds.

Commissioner Kuznia moved, Commissioner Cummings seconded, to adopt Resolution 505, awarding the contract to Frerichs Construction Company for the Plumbing and HDCP Project at Dow Towers. The motion was approved unanimously.


Commissioner Halverson moved, Commissioner Gadd seconded, to adjourn the meeting. The motion was approved unanimously. The meeting adjourned at 7:06 p.m.
