Commission approves various bids

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

The Moffat County Commission approved three bid requests, all 3-0, at its meeting Tuesday morning.

Two of the bids are for the Moffat County Public Safety Center, and the third is for the Craig/Moffat County Airport.

Combined, the bids totaled $35,589, though $12,273 for the airport will be paid out of a Colorado Department of Local Affairs grant and not require county funds.

All bids were given to the lowest bidder.

The airport bid went to Fort Collins-based Risk Removal, Inc., to remove asbestos from the old terminal building and prepare it for demolition.

The Safety Center bids went to different companies for different projects.

First, the commission approved an $8,941 bid from Boy-Ko Supply of Craig for a new commercial dishwasher for the jail. However, a Moffat County Sheriff’s Office official said jail staff had never worked with the brand offered by Boy-Ko, so the commission added a stipulation that the Sheriff’s Office could review the brand before it buys the dishwasher.

The final bid was $14,375 to Masterworks Mechanical to replace a rooftop air conditioning and heating unit.

After approving the various bids, the commission also approved, 3-0, changing its contract with The Memorial Hospital to hire an emergency management coordinator, to hiring current Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Soos as a part-time county employee.

The county’s original contract with the hospital ends today.

Soos plans to stay on with emergency management through Dec. 31 and perhaps longer.
