Government update for Oct. 13

Moffat County Commission

Last met: Tuesday, Oct. 13


• Tabled awarding a bid for reconstructing the American Legion Post 62 roof because of a discrepancy in information given to bidders.

Some county information asked contractors for 30-year shingles, while other materials asked for 50-year.

When county officials publicly opened the bids Monday, different companies bid different materials, which altered their bid prices.

Commissioner Tom Gray said he was uncomfortable asking companies to rebid because each of them saw their competitors’ prices when the bids were opened.

County officials could not determine what they considered a fair solution during the meeting, but plan to reconvene on the issue at the commission’s Oct. 20 meeting.

• Approved, 2-0, a $35,957 bid from TLC Carpet for new flooring at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion. It was the low bid submitted.

• Approved, 2-0, waiving the formal bid process for the Moffat County Assessor’s Office to contract outside companies to assist with auditing energy industry property and appraising commercial buildings.

The county plans to hire Oklahoma-based Visual Lease Services for energy property audits, and Littleton-based ValueWest for commercial appraisals.

Both companies have worked for the county the last few years.

• Approved, 2-0, vacating county ownership of the alley between Center Avenue and Eddy Avenue in Lay, as well as a portion of Center Avenue that runs from County Road 17 to Main Street.

The Commission tabled vacating two alleys in Hamilton until county staff can meet further with residents.

• Approved, 2-0, a personnel requisition for a part-time night manager at Sunset Meadows. It is an existing position.
