"Tidehaven approves stadium concession stand bid" by: Jessica Shepard

   Tidehaven ISD trustees unanimously approved just over $656,000 as a construction bid to Lynn Construction Company for a new concession stand at Delvin L. Taska Stadium during their regular meeting Monday, June 24.
   Since it was his company bidding for the job, trustee Stuart Lynn abstained from voting.
   “I do want to point out that we’re using local guys to do the work,” he said prior to the vote.
   Other company bids were over $1.3 and $1.4 million for the two Houston-based companies, CDM7 and Fielder’s Choice, respectively.
   “When we had Stuart do our windstorm certification as the lowest bid he saved us tens, if not thousands of dollars for the district,” said board president Stephen Crow.
   “With this concession stand project bid, it helps us stay within our numbers for the entire stadium renovation.”
