County commissioners to consider bids

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward County Commissioners will consider several bid tabulations during their regular meeting Monday at 10 a.m. in the courthouse.

The tabulations are for 3 sets of bids that were opened during the county commissioner's June 18 meeting.

There were 2 bids for water system improvements in Rural Water District No. 1. A bid from Bolay Construction Company amounting to $298,775 and a bid from HTM Underground amounting to $277,650.

There were also several bids for a new rescue truck for Woodward County Fire Department. Jon's Mid-America Fire Apparatus gave 2 bids for a 2013 international truck, 7400 series. One amounting to $237,781 with a 200 gallon water tank and one at $302,208 with a 300 gallon tank.

VT Hackney bid $299,945.20 for a 7400 series international truck. Chief Fire and Safety Company bid $315,666 for a 160 gallon truck.

The last bid tabulation is for janitorial services for the Woodward County Health Department.  Amanda Runyan bid $11 an hour with a required 20 hours per week of work.

The commissioners tabled action on the bids last week in order to allow time for the agencies who will receive the products and/or services to review the submitted bid packages.

In addition to potentially awarding contracts from last week's bids, the county commissioners will also open new bids for a breathing compressor and fill station for the Woodward County Fire Department.

Also on the agenda is the authorization for Woodward County Health Department to enter into contracts or leases for Fiscal Year 2012 to 2013 for services.

Charolett Waggoner, county clerk, said the agenda item is for the health department to be able to enter into contracts or leases for different services, such as postage, copy machines or maintenance, throughout the next fiscal year.

"It's for they different types of services they will enter into with the companies," she said.

Other agenda items include the county cash fund estimate of needs and request for appropriations for June and blanket purchase orders.
