Dill wins library painting job
Freeland resident Craig Dill of House Painting by Hand has won the contract to paint the Langley Library.
The low bid was submitted at $13,700, above the city’s budget to repaint the building, but “significantly lower” than the next lowest bid. Hand painting the building will minimize any impact to the library’s clients because Dill will not have to tape off the doors, which is often done when buildings are spray painted.
Mayor Fred McCarthy said the city received three bids, though Langley originally received none after sending out seven requests for proposals earlier this summer.
That issue led Public Works Director Maria Cablao to propose Langley simplify its contracts to make it easier for smaller, more local contractors to apply.
Cablao proposed holding the work until spring 2014, to which she said Dill tentatively agreed.
Council members approved the contract 3-0.
