Government update for July 6

Moffat County Commission

Last met: June 30


• Approved, 2-0, contributing an additional $4,500 to the Craig/Moffat County Airport to put a new asphalt overlay on its front parking lot.

• Approved, 2-0, three bids for the road and bridge department. All were the lowest bids submitted.

First was a $29,100 bid from Idaho-based Intermountain Machine & Fabrication for two packer/rollers.

The commission also approved spending $7,507.53 with Craig-based MJK Sales and Hardware for 750 feet of fencing for the Moffat County Landfill. MJK’s was the only bid the county received on time.

Finally, the commission approved contracting with Steamboat Springs-based Northwest Colorado Consultants to test the asphalt materials used to put an overlay on County Road 7. The bid doesn’t have a set total, because the county will use the firm as needed.

• Approved, 2-0, departmental budget changes for June. However, none required any additional dollars, and the county’s contingency fund of $200,000 and emergency reserve account of $900,502 were unchanged.

Next meeting: Tuesday, Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way
