Willmar electrical contractor wins Perham hospital bid
PERHAM -- Two commercial electrical contractors were almost neck-and-neck in bidding for the lucrative Perham Memorial Hospital project-one from Willmar, and one about a half-mile away, near Perham's big Main Street.
Willmar Electric was the apparent low bidder on the project, by about $88,000. The stakes were high. Electrical work for the new Perham hospital is estimated at about $2.7 million, based on the engineers, planners and project manager, Brainerd-based NorSon.
