Kingsville Unveils Modern Market Plan, Opens Construction Bid
Montserrado County – An architectural design of a modern market building to be erected in Kingsville #7 Community in Montserrado County District #1, to host at least 1,500 local business owners, with an attached daycare school was formally unveiled and construction bids have been declared formally opened.
When completed, the project will cost US$55,000, because it will include an adjusted first aid service and landscaping.
Montserrado County District #1 Representative Lawrence Morris on behalf of the Kingsville #7 Community formally divulged the modern market design and declared the construction bid open on Monday, May 13, 2019, at the Kingsville #7 town hall.
“The bid is for two weeks and the bidding form or package is $200usd. The value of the market ranges between $40,000 to 60,000 depending on the bidders’ application. The township council is the committee set up to do the bid evaluation with some experts from the Public Procurement and Concession Commission,” Rep. Morris asserted.
“Only one bidder can win the bid and bidder is encouraged to hire the locals from the township for some skilled n unskilled jobs.”
The Montserrado County lawmaker, the Kingsville #7 Community Action Group in the USA, and Liberia’s Kingsville # Township will collaborate to construct the market, following a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which was signed on Friday, February 1, 2019 by Rep. Morris, Phil George, president of the Kingsville #7 Community Action Group in the USA, and Liberia’s Kingsville Township Commissioner Augustus Binda.
The groundbreaking was also held immediately after the signing of the MOU on the same day.
According to the MOU, each of the three partners will contribute to the construction of the project, but Rep. Morris and the Kingsville Community Action Group are committed to contributing about 93 percent of the total cost while the township input will be about 7 percent.
Rep. Morris told residents that the expected market building grew out of his passion to develop his district. He said there were a series of email exchanges, telephone conversations, and meetings with Mr. Phil George of Kingsville #7 and who currently lives in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.
George said the construction of the market has been a long-time plan and for which his organization has gathered resources.
He said members of Kingsville #7 are not only living in Kingsville #7 in the USA but in other States and outside of the US, though they are from Kingsville #7 in Liberia.
