Cheyenne County Board of Commissioners awarded a bid for the weed superintendent contract in their regular meeting Monday. In last month’s meeting, Commissioners tabled bids from C-Weed Management LLC and Renkoski Vegetation to further discuss proposed bids for the Cheyenne County Weed Superintendent contract.
In Monday’s meeting the bid from C-Weed Management for $50,900 was accepted by the board.
With a lower bid than Renkoski Vegetation, Commissioner Darrell Johnson said their decision was for the lower bid.
“I have to speak for the amount of tax dollars, based on the amount of bids, the low bid is about $6,000 lower the Renkoski,” Johnson said.
Commissioner Randy Miller said he was not real positive that a contractor is the direction to go, recommending a one year contract to see how it works.
“That way we make sure this is the best way for the county,” Miller said.
