Kaitlin Gebby reports: The Bradley County Schools Board of Education has accepted a bid of $2,440,000 from Wilson Construction Group LLC for the Black Fox and North Lee Elementary school projects.
Wilson Construction Group LLC, based in Athens, was the lowest bid for both projects at a total of $2,440,000 of work in 175 calendar days.
Other bids were made by TriCon Inc., of Cleveland, for $2,697,000, and Wilder Contracting LLC, of Harrison, for $2,459,000. The law requires school boards to choose the best and/or lowest bid, giving them the freedom to weigh price and quality of work.

A small fire broke out in the kitchen at the Life Care Center of Ooltewah on the evening of February 8, the Hamilton County Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security says.
According to Hamilton County spokeswoman Amy Maxwell, 911 dispatch received a report of a kitchen fire around 5:40 p.m.
Upon arrival, firefighters reported a small fire in the laundry bin.
