Bid Awarded to Local Business on Entranceway Work at Homer Town Hall


During the Town of Homer Town Board meeting on Wednesday, a bid was awarded towards the cleaning and painting of the front of the Homer Town Hall in the Village of Homer. Joseph Rivers Painting of Homer was awarded the contract after a unanimous vote by the Town Board.

In total, there were two bids that came to the Town of Homer for the work. One being Joseph Rivers Painting in the amount of $19,995 and the other W.L. Kline in the amount of around $35,000.

“We’re gonna go from the top down. Clean it, repoint it, scrap all the masonry down, seal the stairs, repaint everything, paint the stone that has been painted. Nothing that hasn’t been painted is going to be painted…. Redo the railings, re-caulk the entranceway.”

Homer Town Supervisor Mike Park said to the Town Board.

Supervisor Park said he has spoken with Joseph Rivers and ensured all the expectations by the town will be met, to which was agreed. With that, Supervisor Park recommended approving Joseph Rivers Painting bid.

Work is expected to begin sometime in early June and is estimated to take approximately two weeks to complete. While work is being done, both members of the community and those who work at the Town Hall will have to use the rear entranceway to the building.

During the discussion portion, Legislator Linda Jones (LD-9), who attended the meeting asked to make note of what Joseph Rivers Painting has done for the community.

“Joe Rivers Painting does a lot for the community all the time. Two examples: he is repainting all the old antique light posts that go into Dwyer [Memorial] Park. Friends of Dwyer Park is paying for the paint and he is doing the labor and that great big new dock/pier they built last year [Joe] right away stepped up and said if the County buys the stain my guys will do it.”

Jones said to the Town Board of the donated man-hours for beautification improvements.
