DEL MAR — Beachgoers and visitors to Powerhouse Community Center will soon have a cleaner place to clean up after council members at the Jan. 19 meeting awarded a construction contract to rehabilitate the public restrooms at the oceanfront facility.
The Richards Group’s $132,160 proposal was the lower of two bids submitted when the project was advertised late last year.
Norse Corporation submitted a bid for $175,000. Contracting laws allow the city to award the contract to the lowest responsive bidder, which in this case is The Richards Group.
