  • The German Flatts Town Council accepted several bids for the new community center project currently being constructed during a special meeting Friday morning.
    The council met with Tom Breiten, architect for Templeton Landscape Architecture and Planning, of Cooperstown, to discuss the bids submitted for materials and labor for different parts of the project.
    The following bids were accepted: Lennon Construction, of Frankfort, for labor in the amount of $12,890 and $34,000; Little Falls Concrete, of Little Falls, for concrete materials in the amount of $31,301.38; Triton Window and Doors, of Utica, for windows in the amount of $5,735.42; Little Falls Lumber, of Little Falls, for the wooden floor system in the amount of $11,982.94; and Little Falls Lumber for the roof system in the amount of $36,471.21.
    This brings the bids accepted to a total of $132,380.95.
    Plus, Lennon Construction is currently doing the foundation work for the center.
    All the bids that were accepted came with the notation they were accepted pending the completion of the proper paperwork.
    The council will accept bids for the doors that need to be installed at the center at a later date as they were inadvertently left out of the bid process.
    Construction for the new community center started over the past week.
    Town Supervisor Frank Spatto said the two-story structure is going to have a 30 foot by 30 foot kitchen and a 40 foot by 80 foot hall that will be able to hold a couple hundred people.
    The community center will be connected to a village-owned house next to the park. Spatto said the home will be used for receptions and historical exhibits.
    Spatto said the town hopes to have the framework, walls, windows, doors and roof completed by November. He said they will continue with whatever work is needed next year, and said members of the community will likely help with that.
    “We’re not afraid to roll our sleeves up and do things ourselves,” he said.
    The work is being done through a $150,000 grant from the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation’s Environmental Protection Fund.
    Town Clerk Marie Hennings said Friday’s special meeting was held so the council could accept the bids within the specific timeframe set for the grant.
