Cottage Health System CEO Ron Werft said pains are being taken to avoid a conflict of interest in awarding the construction contract for the 115-unit housing project Cottage hopes to break ground on early next year. One of the two firms submitting bids was Michael Towbes Construction, whose owner has served on the Cottage board for the past 10 years. No one from Capital Management, the other construction firm, serves on the board. Werft, however, said Towbes will not participate in any of the discussions surrounding the bid.
