Total cost of the project is $11,725.
Work will be completed by Armor Floor Covering of Seymour, owned by Jeff Rowe.
Included in the flooring project will be removal and disposal of the existing carpet, complete reflooring of the library facility and its adjacent community room.
Installed will be new plank flooring.
Color of the flooring is gray.
Funding for the project comes from the county’s share of Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Stimulus (C.A.R.E.S.) Act funding. Leading the city’s efforts in receiving federal money for the new flooring was Terry Penner, administrator of the C.A.R.E.S. Act program for the city of Seymour.
Armor Floor Covering will start the flooring project in December.
Bids were opened the regular meeting of the Seymour Board of Aldermen held Thursday, Nov. 5.
Armor Floor Covering’s bid was the lowest by several thousand dollars.
“New flooring is badly needed at the library,” South Ward Alderman Nadine Crisp said. “The carpeting that’s now in there is in really bad shape.”
“Fortunately, we’ve got people like Terry (Penner) looking out for us and got us the C.A.R.E.S. Act funding for this deal,” North Ward Alderman William Pogue added.
The aldermen were unanimous on the choice of the new floor covering.
The new flooring has a 10-year warranty.
