Bids for Lemoore Senior Center Rejected
In 2015, the City of Lemoore was awarded a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) in the amount of $1,419,391 to repair its 25-year-old senior facility to bring it up to code and provide long-term energy cost savings. Approximately $1.17 million was designated for this work. Since all of the five bids received so far have exceeded that amount, the Lemoore City Council decided to have a new round of bidding, even though the work must be completed by October 31.

‘Not Too Late for a Flu Shot’
“We are seeing an uptick in flu-like illnesses visiting the emergency departments, as is common this time of year,” reports Sharon Minnick, Ph.D., epidemiologist with the Tulare County Health & Human Service Agency. “Very few are confirmed influenza, and there are probably multiple viruses responsible. It’s not too late to get a flu shot.”
