The Alexander County’s board of commissioners has approved a bid for the new Courthouse Park.
David Icenhour, executive director for the Alexander County Economic Development Corporation, recommended the low bid submitted by Lail Builders of Hickory totaling $609,560.
The park project will consist of grading, site work, landscaping, sidewalks, and a performance stage on county property located at 131 West Main Avenue in downtown Taylorsville.
Construction should begin in late May with completion within four to five months, according to Icenhour.
In addition, commissioners awarded a $90,000 bid to Kemp Sigmon Construction for the construction of a 20-space parking lot at Wittenburg Access Area. The parking lot will primarily serve as an access to a new nature trail that the county plans to create.
