Marshall County Commissioners Discuss Highway Purchase

  Marshall County Highway Superintendent Neal Haeck presented the commissioners with a request to purchase two trucks.

Instead of requesting sealed bids, Haeck told commissioners that a representative from the State Board of Accounts said he could request quotes and gather prices rather than go through the bidding process, with the stipulation that the three quotes needed include specs of what the highway department is requesting. He will then bring that information to the commissioners who will then approve a purchase.

The commissioners allowed Haeck to proceed.

The commissioners also approved including a letter of support for the Plymouth Airport’s grant application for an Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS). The county will not be submitting monetary funds for the grant, but the grant requires a government entity’s support of the purchase.
