The Turlock City Council Meeting agenda had a scheduled closed session to discuss the B Street property and anticipated litigation in a potential case.
 
After the closed session, it was reported that Council decided to reject all the bids for the Carnegie project.
 
15 sealed bids were revealed for the Carnegie project in June 2009 and all were under the estimated $7.8 million. The lowest bid came in at $5.3 million.
 
It is unclear as to why there may be a potential legal case in regards to the bids or why rejecting them was necessary.
 
Reports throughout the arts community is that there were several bid protests, but again, no reasons for the protests have been given.
 
At this time Mayor John Lazar said that there would be no comments due to a potential case.
 
The City of Turlock is expected to send out a press release by the end of the week.
