A company rescinded their protest to challenge a bid proposal to build a $2 million emergency management headquarters in Trumbull County.
Lake Management Systems rescinded their protest before a scheduled hearing Tuesday with county commissioners.
Commissioners approved Murphy Contracting’s $2.32 million bid over Lake Management’s $2.29 million bid.
Officials say they expect construction to begin as soon as possible.
The new operations center will be built on land near the Trumbull County Engineers office off of North River Road.
The building would house some sheriff’s deputies, the county’s Emergency Management Agency and the county vehicle maintenance department.
“There is grant money involved that has to be done,” said county commissioner Frank Fuda. “If it’s not done in a particular period of time, we lose that grant money, so it’s something that has to be done pretty quickly.”
