LISBON, Maine —A judge has ruled that the Lisbon School District must award a multimillion-dollar school construction job to the construction company that submitted the lowest bid.

Justice Nancy Mills issued her ruling on Monday.

Landry/French Construction of Scarborough took legal action after the Lisbon School District awarded the construction contract to the second-lowest bidder.

The total dollar amount on the project to renovate Lisbon High School's gymnasium is approximately $4.5 million.

Landry/French's bid for the project was at least $17,000 lower than the bid of the second-lowest bidder, Ledgewood Construction of South Portland.
