Contractors can bid to work on interior of Potawatomi Hotel

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- On Monday, contractors interested in working on the inside of the new Potawatomi Hotel will have their chance to bid on the project.

Work on the new hotel started last year, and the project is scheduled to be complete by next summer.

The basic layout for the hotel is complete, but there is still a lot of work to be done, from drywalling to landscaping.

"It's for the interior and all the exterior that you see here. The stone, everything. This will be a new road here, so the paving, all the landscaping -- that's a portion but also all the interior work as well," Project Manager Kyle Merrill said.

About 30 contracts will be awarded.

The cost of the job and the requirements for diversity will be considered when making the final selection.
