Police precinct bid approved by McDonough council

The McDonough City Council voted at its Jan. 3 regular meeting to award a $722,597 bid to J.R. Bowman Construction of McDonough for the construction of the new police precinct on the south side of the city near Rufus Stewart Park.

The cost will be paid through impact fees. Construction should take about 10 months after the scope of the work is finalized, according to an official familiar with the project.

The council also approved $18,000 for C&C Lovejoy to do an emergency repair to a headwall, storm drain, apron and pipe on Highway 42 and Griffin Street at Shiloh Baptist Church.
