The Kirkland City Council unanimously passed a resolution waiving the standard competitive bidding process for selecting a new contractor to complete renovations on the southern portion of Juanita Beach Park. The previous contractor was fired on June 2, 2011 when it did not complete the project on time. The City will bring on a new contractor as quickly as possible to complete the project.
Construction will not affect use of the north side of the park. The playfields and tennis courts will remain open for public use. The City’s Juanita Friday Market is unaffected.
