Baseball contracts awarded as more funds are raised

A new $3 million injection kept York’s baseball stadium alive today as project managers awarded five prime construction contracts.

A new $3 million injection kept York’s baseball stadium alive today as project managers awarded five prime construction contracts.

Bids on the stadium came in above projections, raising the total budget by $3 million, to $32.5 million, officials said today.

The added cost is being split three ways.

Private donors who already committed $8 million to the stadium agreed to raise their contribution by up to $1 million. York Professional Baseball Club, the company that would operate the stadium, agreed to kick in another million.

The final $1 million would be paid by the York County Industrial Development Authority, the agency that would own the stadium.

That money would come from a YCIDA investment portfolio. The proceeds from that portfolio pay for operations of the York County Economic Development Corp.

The portfolio would shrink by about a quarter, to roughly $3 million, officials said. That would reduce the investment returns and lead to budget cuts for YCEDC, officials said.

Among the winning bidders, Lobar Inc. of York County was awarded the general trades contract. Worden & Shewell, also of York County, was awarded a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning contract.
