United bleachers bid OK’d

HANOVERTON- The United Local school board this week approved a bid for new bleachers at the stadium.

The board approved a bid from Kreidler Construction Company of $148,450 for visitors bleachers and $12,039 for band bleachers, according to schools Superintendent Steve Viscounte. The current visitors seats were sold for $6,000 through bidding.

Viscounte said the area will be cleared out by the end of this month and the cement foundation will be poured in early July. The stadium bleachers will take approximately six to seven days to put up. The completion date is Aug. 9.

For each day past Aug. 9, a $500 penalty will be incurred by the construction company.

The board had previously employed Buehrer Group Architecture and Engineering associates to oversee the project after the bleachers were ruled unsafe for use.
