Bids opened for new county building at Rulo

Richardson County Courthouse

(KLZA)-- Richardson County Commissioners voted to accept bids for review from three companies for the purchase and construction of a building to replace the county garage at Rulo, when they met March 15.

Bids for both wood frame and steel buildings were proposed by Mezger Construction of Table Rock, Conn Construction of Auburn and Skyline Construction or Roca, Nebraska.

Mezger Construction was the only company to submit a bid for both types of buildings and appeared to have submitted the low bid for the steel building at a cost of $113,265 and $92,860 for a wood frame building.

Representatives of the Rural Water District #2 met with Commissioners and Highway Superintendent Steve Darveau Jr. to discuss the placement of a portion of waterline under county road right-of-way. There is an area where the water line was placed at a culvert location where the line was not placed in accordance with County requirements.

Rural Water District representatives Paul Benitz and Gayle Swisegood said the District is agreeable to reinstalling the line to meet the requirements, but indicated it most likely could not be corrected before May 1.

They will meet with the contractor to discuss options to make the correction and report back to the Commissioners.

The Board also reviewed the condition of patrol units of the Sheriff's Office and give consideration to purchasing an additional 2022 Ford Explorer and selling a surplus 2017 Dodge Ram pickup. Commissioners approved the sale of the 2017 Dodge Ram pickup that has been deemed surplus property on a Big Iron auction.

The Board approved purchase orders for replacing a cooler refrigerator in the amount of $3,688 and a dishwasher system for $5806 in the kitchen at the Law Enforcement Center.

Approval was also given to an addendum to the Interlocal Agreement for the provision of Cooperative extension Services for the funding of an Extension Assistant for 4-H.
