A number of buildings will be demolished in the Old Town area of Galt beginning today. The process will clear the way for additional parking for current and future businesses, according to Public Works Director Steven Winkler.
In total, five buildings on three city-owned lots in the area of Fourth and B streets will be demolished.
The low bidder, who received a notice to proceed from the city Thursday, was PARC Specialty Contractors, of Sacramento. The bid of $49,950 was quite a bit lower than the city anticipated, Winkler said.
The work is scheduled to be completed on or before Dec. 31.
