Chairperson Stipp told committee that according to District’s attorney that it is okay to negotiate their fee. As a district we should make sure that GRA understands that the budget is set at $700,000 for the entire project. Also, the construction of Station 63 needs to be a design/bid/build and as a community services district we are mandated to take the lowest qualified bidder. Before the contract is signed, the attorney wants to review it.
