The city of Wellman is moving forward to expand the use of the Wellman Activity Center.

The city is currently taking sealed bids for the installation of a new generator at the center.

“With the generator, the activity center will be able to be used as an emergency shelter,” City Administrator Kelly Litwiller said. “We also will partner with the county to be able to provide emergency housing there.”

The project will be funded by a $101,860 grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation.

The city was awarded the grant in fall 2017.

Litwiller said that the city will have to pay the first $20,000 toward the project. The grant will cover the remainder, up to $101,860.

“If the bids come in higher, we may not do the project,” Litwiller said. “If they come in lower, the city still pays the $20,000.”

The sealed bids are due by 5:30 p.m. at the Wellman City Hall on Monday, April 16.

Bids will be opened during the City Council meeting that night.
