WICHITA, Kansas -- Wichita city leaders will hear the final administrative appeal on Tuesday for bids on the new airport terminal.
The city has said they are ready to move forward with construction of the $100 million project, but it comes as a jilted contractor vows to fight the decision.
The city initially rejected the lowest bid from Dondlinger-Hunt, because the city and the FAA said the company did not do enough to make sure it would hire minority workers and sub-contractors.
Dondlinger appealed, but the city's Board of Bids unanimously rejected that appeal earlier this month, meaning the city intends to move forward with Key Construction, instead.
Dondlinger says the battle is not over... and has not ruled out the possibility of a lawsuit if the appeal fails.
Tuesday's hearing is expected to begin around 10:30 a.m. and last two hours.
