The Heidelberg Township Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed Tuesday, Feb. 27, to accept a $274,490 bid from A.K. Petersheim Builders LLC for the exterior remodel of the township building.

The remodel will include reroofing, doors, and siding for the municipal building at 111 Mill Road.

The base bid was $247,790, with a $26,700 add alternate bid for the installation of main storefront doors.

Supervisors elected to take the bid including these doors.

“I think we should replace the doors, they’ve been here since the ’70s,” said board secretary/treasurer Ted Cromleigh. “If we’re gonna do it, I think we should do it right.”

Following their notification of bid recipient, A.K. Petersheim will have 180 days to complete renovations.

Competing bids were significantly higher, at around $320,000 and $370,000.

The building was first constructed in 1977 and is long in need of updates, supervisors said. Following renovations, the doors will be set up to enable keycard access.
