Oppenheimer Inc., Parkville’s financial advisor to the city on the construction for a new City Hall, said higher-than-expected bids for the project will require cutting $500,000 from the original project plans.

I never thought it was attractive so if it’s going to save us money I’m for getting ride of it.”
