|Bid opening in September for Vidalia Municipal Complex|
Mayor Hyram Copeland said bids for the Vidalia Municipal Complex will be let Sept. 13 and construction could begin as early as late October.
He also said the State Bond Commission has approved the town's application for $6.9 million to pay for the project, which will be financed through USDA.
Copeland said the municipal complex will include a town hall, fire station, police station, city park, two high school ballparks, a walking trail, a 2,500-sq. ft. community center and other features. He said the park will be built through public and private donations.
The municipal complex will sit on 32 acres, adjacent to the 50-acre Vidalia Recreation Complex to be constructed by Concordia Recreation District No. 3.
Copeland said drainage issues on the west end of town will be addressed as part of the project.
"We're going to get with the highway department and put three outlets under Hwy. 84 to alleviate some of the drainage issues and do other drainage work as well," said Copeland.
He noted that following the heavy rains last week "every building we have is leaking. This new complex is our future."
