Three bids for Marietta City Hall's renovation were submitted and opened Friday.
Bids were due at 11 Friday morning.
Safety Service Director Jonathan Hupp unsealed the bids from Grae-Con Construction, Kinsale Corporation and Wolf Creek Contracting Company.
Marietta City Engineer Joe Tucker says he's pleased with the bids, coming from three solid companies.
Tucker says at the December 10th meeting, they'll be presenting recommendations to city council.
He says the project's start date is December 27th.
Marietta City Hall's roof has been under construction but that is just the beginning. There's much more to come, for a whole new city hall.
By the end of the year the whole building will start to be remodeled.
Marietta City officials met with Pickering Associates for a 90 percent design review meeting Thursday afternoon.
Marietta City Engineer Joe Tucker says they are working on a tight schedule to soon be able to put bids out for the renovation of city hall by the end of October.
"The basement, the first floor and the second floor will all be updated, renovated. Of course one of the primary drivers is that we want to make the building completely ADA compliant," said Tucker.
The fire department will primarily stay as is however, it be getting a new conference, training room and a storage room.
Tucker says construction is scheduled to start before the end of December.
