Construction on Train Station could begin in November

It appears as though the Pulaski Train Station may not have to set through another winter without a proper roof.
Pulaski Town Council voted Tuesday night to enter into a $1.2 million contract with South End Construction to rebuild the train station, which was gutted by fire last Nov. 17. If all goes well, that means construction could begin sometime in mid-November this yea
Town Manager John Hawley told council members Tuesday that rebuild costs the town may have to cover could range anywhere from about $11,000 to about $123,000. However, he said he thinks the town should continue to pursue getting the sprinkler system ($32,193) paid by insurance because “we’re right and the insurance company is wrong” the sprinkler system should be part of the rebuild cost.
When Hawley was preparing for Tuesday night’s meeting he was concerned the town might not be able to award a contract in time to begin construction this fall. His concern was the result of a letter received from the insurance company suggesting the town might have to cover more of the quoted rebuild cost than expected.
The insurance company contends some items quoted essentially exceed by $8,946 what the insurance company considers to be of equal quality and value to what existed prior to the fire.
Based on that information, Hawley said the town’s portion of South End’s quote could include that $8,946; $2,074 for bathroom improvements and a small kitchen; $32,193 for a sprinkler system; and $80,000 built in for contingency that may or may not be used.
Mayor Jeff Worrell questioned the likelihood the $80,000 in contingency funds will be needed for the project.
Hawley said he doubted the full amount of the contingency is needed. He said everyone feels sure there won’t be much need for contingency funds, but he expects $10,000 to $15,000 may be used.
