Orca Pacific of Auburn has been selected as the main contractor to demolish and remove the old hot tub/spa at the Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion and install a new therapy pool in its place. The project will include an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) lift for the pool.
The contract calls for Orca Pacific to complete the work at the Pavilion pool by July 15 at a cost of $70,045.84. The city is paying for the project with a $75,000 grant received last December from the Verdant Health Commission.
Though “a very limited pool” of contractors bid on the project, city officials were pleased with the outcome of the bidding process as the work will come in at a cost beneath the grant amount. “Orca Pacific has done business with the City before and is judged to be a responsible business,” a city memorandum stated.
