Dubuque Company Will Build Lancaster Pool

LANCASTER, WI (Ben Caxton) — A Dubuque construction company may be getting a reputation for being all wet. Portzen Construction of Dubuque, which built Fennimore’s new pool is now also the apparent low bidder to build the new municipal swimming pool for the City of Lancaster. Bids were unsealed this week revealing that Portzen offered to build the new facility at a cost of $2,394,000, about $375,000 less than Ricchio Incorporated of Gurnee, Illinois which bid $2,769,000 on the project. Lancaster City Clerk Dave Kurihara says the bids are preliminary and the bids submitted need to be checked with the contractors. Once confirmed, they’ll be reviewed in committee before being presented to the Lancaster Common Council for approval. The city had estimated a cost of $3.8-million for the project. That total includes $900,000 the city is looking to raise from private donations to pay for amenities for the pool, including two diving boards and a water slide. The project is expected to get underway in mid-August after the end of the swimming season this year. The city wants the project completed for the start of the swimming season in 2020.
