The City of Savannah, Ga., will accept sealed bids until Nov. 9, 2010, for painting services at the historic Grayson Stadium.
The 8,000-person-capacity Grayson Stadium was built in 1926, making it the oldest working minor-league ballpark in the United States. It was originally known as Municipal Stadium, but after a 1940 hurricane caused significant damage, major renovations were needed. General William L. Grayson led the effort to raise the $150,000 needed to repair the stadium, and so it was renamed in his honor. Grayson Stadium is currently home to the Savannah Sand Gnats, a minor league, Class-A affiliate of the New York Mets.
The project includes painting floors, risers, wooden benches, Jumbotron sign posts, foul poles, concourse surfaces, doors, frames, railings, and walls, including a non-skid finish on walking surfaces. The contract includes options for additional painting on walls and gates. The owner will conduct a mandatory pre-bid meeting on Oct. 29, 2010.
