Do I hire the contractor?

No, if approved for the grant, Wellington will provide a third party inspector to come out to your home to prepare a bid specifications document for your specific project. If you agree with the bid specifications, your project will be advertised by the Village for eligible general contractors to submit bids on the project. The contractor with the lowest responsive bid will be awarded the project.
