Bids on Eagle Pass construction project due by November 18
The SWTJC Board of Trustees gave the green light on Thursday (Oct. 16) to advertise for bids on the construction project at the Eagle Pass campus.



Contractors interested in bidding on the project should contact architect Tom Ferrell at (361) 854-1967.



Ferrell, a partner in the architectural firm of Ferrell/Brown and Associates in Corpus Christi, presented construction documents for the project, which includes the addition of a new 34,000 square-foot classroom building and a new 4,600 square-foot addition to the Sul Ross Rio Grande College building.



Ferrell told the board the projects cost estimates are $6,791,000 for the classroom building and $906,000 for the Sul Ross Rio Grande building addition, slightly higher than when he first presented his site plan in April.



The increase comes with the addition of two alternate bid items, which include a covered and fenced exterior dining court and parking improvements to the downtown complex.


Next step in the process will be to send out an invitation to submit proposals. Deadline for submitting proposals will be Nov. 18.

No SWTJC athletes finished in the top ten in individual events. Though disappointed by his team’s performance, SWTJC rodeo coach Roy Angermiller was pleased with the overall results of this year’s event.


“I wish our athletes would have had a little more luck,” Angermiller said, “we had an off night but I’m sure we’ll bounce back and compete hard next week.”


Angermiller also thanked sponsors of this year’s event. “The Uvalde and area business community were once again outstanding in supporting our annual rodeo,” Angermiller said. “I just can’t thank them enough for their generous support.”


SWTJC rodeo team members will compete this weekend (Oct. 9-11), in Mt. Pleasant at the Northeast Texas Community College Rodeo.
