    - Casco, Inc. - Total bid of $22,264

    - Wayest - Total bid of $24,088.40

    - Midwest Printing: 8.5"x14"-16 cents, 8.5"x17"-17 cents, 8.5"x19"-18 cents

    - Martin Marietta Materials: 3/8" limestone #2 cover - $23.50/ton; 5/8" limestone #3 cover - $24.50/ton; limestone screening - $19/ton
