Pearl awards bid for safe room project
<![CDATA[Coleman Hammons Construction Co. of Pearl had the winning bid of $2.56 million to build a safe room in Rankin County, but construction is estimated at $3.4 million because of poor soil conditions at the Marquette Road site. State and federal emergency management agencies are providing 95 percent of the funding with Rankin County providing the remainder. ALSO: The Pearl Board of Aldermen rejected bids last month for construction of West Rankin Parkway after they came in too high. City officials said bidders were not clear that dirt needed to build the roadway was to come from the construction site rather than elsewhere. The parkway will run from the north end of Pearson Road at U.S. 80 to Treetops Boulevard in Flowood. COMING UP: The Pearl Public School Board has adopted a Bring Your Own Device policy. Students in grades 6-12 can bring personal technology devices -- excluding cell phones -- to use in class. The trial program is designed to enable students to collaborate and do research using technology.
