Napa County is delaying a project at the Napa County Library to save money on electric bills and improved acoustics.

Bids for the project came in too high for the county’s budget, Janet Walker, a supervising civil engineer for the Public Works Department, told the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday. The board will formally reject the bids on Jan. 29.

In December, the county gave the Public Works Department an OK to elicit sealed bids for the project, which would install wall panels and ceiling tiles designed to reduce sound. A proposed lighting retrofit would make the library more energy-efficient.

The project was estimated to cost $230,000, with the money coming the library capital improvement fund.
