Plenty of contractors are interested in working on the Cain Center project!
Thursday afternoon, the City held a mandatory pre-proposal meeting with potential contractors at the Cain Center. The meeting included myself, the city manager and the architects along with 10 companies interested in being the project's Construction Manager at Risk.
The meeting allowed potential contractors a chance to look around the facility and ask questions.
It also gave me a chance to remind them that we have some of the best subcontractors right here in Athens and to ask them to shop local. That is something I intend to push every chance I get.
Thursday's meeting was another step along the path we have to take on our way to reopening the Cain Center.
The next step will be later this month when we go through the Construction Manager at Risk process.
This project is going to get done!
Mayor Monte Montgomery
