Toccoa Approves Pool Related Bids

Toccoa continues moving forward with construction of a new city pool.

On Monday, city commissioners unanimously approved bids for both the construction of the pool parking lot and concrete work at the pool.

The commission accepted a base bid of $37,840 from Thomason Construction of Toccoa for the parking lot and a bid of $24,800 from Concrete Specialist of Toccoa for the concrete work.

Both bids were the low bids for their respective projects.

Toccoa City Manager Billy Morse said both low bids were over what the city had estimated originally, but recommended moving forward in an effort to keep the pool project moving forward quickly.

The city has stated that the goal is to open the new Doyle Street Pool around the July 4th holiday.

Toccoa Mayor Gail Fry said she is pleased that the bidders for these respective projects are local companies.
