Another step in the renovation project of the old Cadiz Masonic Lodge building was taken Monday night when the Trigg County Fiscal Court met.

Magistrates unanimously approved Cadiz-based Thomas & Major Properties, LLC, over Princeton-based TWM Enterprises as the project manager. Magistrate Barry Littlejohn said that there was only a 1-percent difference in price between the two contractors, with Thomas & Major being the lower bidder, and Thomas & Major was a local contractor.

The agreement will allow Thomas & Major to charge a 10-percent fee to oversee all of the renovation work that will take place. Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander said they don’t have an exact figure for how much the renovation project will cost.

“They’ve done a lot of work previously that is satisfactory,” said Littlejohn.

Last September, magistrates unanimously agreed to apply for a TEA-21 (Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century) grant for $312,500 for the building, which houses the Trigg County Museum.
