TERRE HAUTE —
Vigo County Commissioners on Tuesday opened three bids to replace a heating/air conditioning system on the oldest section of the Vigo County Security Center.
Bidders were Gibson Services at $248,000; B&S Plumbing & Heating Inc. at $223,000; and Springhill Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. at $259,000.
Commissioners took the bids under advisement pending a legal review.
The system is needed or the county would have to relocate 130 inmates to nearby county jails should the system fail.
The Vigo County Council in June appropriated $300,000 to repair the air-handling system.
