With the slow economy, contractors are looking for work--and this was reflected in the bidding for street and improvements at the Clearwater Edition in Perham.


Bids came in 20 percent lower than projections for the project, which includes the infrastructure for the new Perham Memorial Hospital and Home project.

Engineer estimates placed the project at about $3.1 million. But the low bidder came in at about $2.4 million, according to Kelcey Klemm, Perham city manager.
