Bowie Awards Major Bid

The Bowie Community Center project took another step forward Tuesday night.

The city awarded Mega Contractors of Fort Worth the bid for that new community center.

That winning bid was just over $2.1 million, and is right around the estimated cost of the center.

Four construction bids were opened this week before the city council awarded the deal to Mega.

Construction will begin right away and the projected time of completion is June 2011.
