The City of Navasota is getting a new public works warehouse.
Director of Utilities Jennifer Reyna presented contract bids at the most recent city council meeting for a new warehouse. She says the current one on South Railroad Street has been used for years, even before the move to new City Hall, but now there are developers in the downtown who are interested in its location.
“The sale of the city warehouse would be a benefit for continued growth in the area. City staff believes this prime, downtown property is better in ownership of the private sector, rather than the city,” said Reyna. “The private sector will be able to create revenue streams, such as property taxes, possible sales tax, or a mixed beverage tax.”
She went on to say they plan to contract a new warehouse new the waste water treatment plant on Peeples Street.
It would be a 75 foot by 112 foot metal warehouse. 6 bids in total were received, with NBC Management coming in as the lowest and most experienced.
“NBC Management has completed similar projects such as: MidSouth’s Montgomery Facility, Ellwood Texas Forged Machining Complex in Navasota, T&S Sport and RV Showroom in Navasota, Waller County Facility expansion, and the Sealy ISD Livestock Pavilion,” Reyna said.
City Council approved the overall bid to be awarded to NBC Management in the amount of $408,700 for a new public works warehouse in Navasota.
