New UIS Public Safety Building is another budget casualty - Chris Dettro, State Journal Register

University of Illinois Springfield officials are concerned that contracts for its new Public Safety Building may have to be rebid, further delaying a project they say is sorely needed.The $5.3 million project went out for bids in November, and “the bids came in and we were all ready to go,” said Chuck Coderko, director of construction for UIS. “Then the governor stopped everything and it was put on hold pending funding.” Since Gov. Bruce Rauner’s order that the Capital Development Board hold up construction projects until a budget is hammered out, the bids received by UIS technically have expired, Coderko said.
