The plans and specifications complete, together with the blueprints for the new Community Hall, were received this week by H.W. Rieke, who says the architect’s estimate of the cost is $26,000, lower than once thought because concrete work and labor would cost less here than in a city. Advertising for bids will begin immediately, and it is expected that the successful bidder can begin construction within three weeks. Con H. Eckhart is an Odessa bidder who has been doing contract work in this are for many years and has the equipment needed to take on such a job.
