San Miguel County is moving ahead with its project to renovate parts of the old county courthouse.
Recently, the County Commission voted to enter an agreement with Las Vegas-based Franken Construction for the project.
The project’s price tag is $1.9 million. The courthouse was built in 1938.
Franken, the low bidder, had entered a bid higher than the project budget, but through negotiations, the county was able to bring down the price. For instance, to save money, the county will take care of demolition disposal with its own crews.
