June 9--  The Vidalia city council is tabling a $1.6 million bid to build a new city police headquarters.

At a called meeting Thursday, the council deferred any decision on the apparent low bid by Copper Construction Company of Vidalia to its regular monthly meeting Monday night.

The bid is a hundred thousand dollars more than the city had budgeted for the renovation of the former Winn-Dixie building.  City manager Bill Torrance wants the council's okay to negotiate some changes to construction plans in an effort to lower the price.
