At its Feb. 5 meeting the City Council received an update on the progress of the Pavilion in the Park project, which would build an outdoor event facility at Fort Steilacoom Park near the playground and picnic shelter.
The city recently received six bids from companies interested in building the facility. Due diligence is now being done on those six proposals. The company with the lowest bid amount, or lowest responsive bid amount depending on review, will be selected and presented to the City Council for review.
