South Whidbey Fire/EMS shells out $134K for work
Looking forward to added revenue from an approved levy lift, South Whidbey Fire/EMS awarded contracts totaling $140,000 at its stations.
Commissioners approved a $92,570.93 contract for projects at South Whidbey Fire/EMS’ Bayview station. Gary Guersney Construction will renovate the Bayview station and replace its rain gutter.
Bryant Plumbing will work on plumbing at the Bayview station for $9,130.80.
Asbestos abatement at the Maxwelton station plus installation of new sheetrock, insulation and a drop ceiling will cost the district $32,979.56. Combined Construction, Inc. received the contract.
Fire Chief Rusty Palmer requested the commissioners terminate a janitorial contract with Seattle Maintenance Solutions for failure to meet the scope of work cleaning the stations, which included weekly cleaning of the Freeland station, bi-weekly cleaning at the Langley and Bayview stations and monthly visits to all stations.
The $5,695.88 contract was made in January, but stations were not sufficiently cleaned, leading the district to end its agreement with the Lynnwood-based business.
York Building Services will take over the duties for $6,440.48.
