NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WOWO): Sometimes, a second opinion is best.

The New Haven Parks Board decided in June to reject bids it got for construction work on the town’s community center after the lowest bid came in at $1.08-million. The News-Sentinel reports that it paid off, as last night the board approved new bids that totaled more than $884,000, saving the community nearly $200,000.

The work is being done thanks to a $2-million bond issue approved nearly a year ago, designed to remodel a former auto and truck auction property into a community center.

Some of the leftover cash from the bond issue will go toward storage areas and an exercise area entrance.
