Commission OKs Legion roof bid


At its Monday meeting, the Moffat County Commission:

Approved, 2-0, awarding a $30,825 bid to JMAR Construction to re-roof the American Legion Post 62 headquarters on Moffat County Road 7 with 50-year shingles.

County officials tabled this decision from last week because the bid packet contained references to 30-year and 50-year shingles, and different companies submitted bids with one of the two requirements.

After consulting with the county attorney, the commission learned that the only reference to 30-year shingles was on a cover sheet for the online bid packet.

Legally, the county is obligated to honor the conditions set forth in the official bid, not its cover sheet, meaning the commission had to approve a bid for 50-year shingles.

JMAR submitted the lowest bid for 50-year shingles and was granted the contract.

Approved, 2-0, vacating county ownership of two alleyways in Hamilton. Residents asked about the issue said they did not have any concerns, county officials said.

Approved, 2-0, a $9,899 bid from Craig Power Sports for a 2010 Polaris Ranger all-terrain vehicle for the Moffat County Sheriff's Office. The vehicle will be used for search and rescue missions.

It was the low bid submitted.

Approved, 2-0, final payment settlement with Jenison Custom Builders to rebuild portions of the Moffat County Courthouse roof for $57,777. The county was required to buy two legal advertisements about the contract before paying because the contract was more than $50,000.
