The Anderson County Fiscal Court received what amounted to a lump of coal in its Christmas stocking when bids for its new recycling center proved to be at least double the amount it previously approved to spend.
Bids for the proposed $325,000 building were opened during a special called meeting Thursday morning. The lowest bid of four came from Smith Contracting, Inc., for $667,000.
Each of the other bids were over $700,000, the highest being from the Walker Company for $779,000.
