Contractor Chosen to Reroof Hospital

At a special meeting on Tuesday, April 12, the Southern Humboldt Community Healthcare District considered two bids for a facility roofing project.

The board chose Redwood Empire, Inc., of Fortuna, for a “lump sum base bid” of $148,720 for the work. District operations officer Kent Scown said that the project is a full reroof of the entire facility to be completed no later than Sept. 15. He added that the contract has been sent for review and signatures.

Also on the special meeting agenda was a closed-session discussion of College of the Redwoods property. After the meeting, district CEO Matt Rees commented that no decision was made in the closed session.
