Bedford Parks Board Takes Bids For Red Brick Under Advisement

(BEDFORD) – The Bedford Parks Department received only one bid for the renovation of the Red Brick.

Prichett Brothers submitted the only bid to renovate the facility that was damaged following a fire in January 2020.

The board will review the proposal and make sure everything is in order. They also want to ensure that insurance will cover the cost of the renovations.

If there is a gap between the bid and what insurance will pay, then the board will have to make a decision on how to move forward.

It was established on May 6, 1935, by presidential order, as a key part of the Second New Deal.
