Consideration of Architect for Construction of Additional Floor on Long Hospital


6.(c) Mr. Biddle presented his recommendation that an architect be selected to draw plans, specifications and estimates for the construction of an additional floor on Long Hospital to provide adequate isolation quarters. A rough estimate indicates that the project will cost about $60,000.00. There is about $24,000.00 on hand in unrestricted gifts to Long Hospital, and Mr. Biddle believes we can use money from the general fund for repairs of buildings to cover the balance needed. Various architects for this project were discussed, and it was pointed out that the proposition is not attractive to many architects since it is in the nature of a repair job.

On motion of Mr. Feltus, seconded by Mr. McCarty, Mr. Biddle was authorized to negotiate with Mr. A. C. Bohlen as a prospective architect.
