The City Council voted last week to approve IHP Construction for a 10-unit renovation in the public housing authority. IHP beat two other bidders, but it wasn’t the lowest. Officials said the lowest bidder had some problems in its proposal.
The contract is worth $258,000, slightly over the engineer’s estimated cost of $250,000, said Robert Pacheco, the city’s housing director.
