YORK, Neb. (AP) - The York City Council is considering a $7.35 million contract with a Lincoln firm to build a ball field complex.

The York News-Times reports (https://bit.ly/1e250in ) that bids were initially opened in June, but were rejected after coming in $1 million more than that engineer’s projected cost. The specifications were modified, and bids taken again.

The council determined the best was from Nemaha Sports Construction of Lincoln. The council is expected to vote on the awarding of the contract Thursday night.

The complex will be financed by the revenue generated through the city’s additional one-half cent sales tax approved by voters last November.

The city already owns the land on which the complex would be built.
