Starke County Commissioners Accept Roofing, Mowing Bids


The Starke County Commissioners have hired a Knox contractor to fix what is described as a “serious leaky roof” at the county’s storage warehouse. Knox Roofing’s quote of $3,050 includes repairs to the downspouts as well at the old glove factory. Starke County Roofing also submitted a price, but theirs was considerably higher.

The commissioners also accepted the lone quote for mowing at the old landfill site from Mark Milo Enterprises for $19,850. Auditor Kay Chaffins advises she also mailed requests for quotes to Sherf’s Lawn Service, Snowdons Lawn Care & Landscaping and Mareska Lawn Service on July 7th. The site must be mowed in accordance with guidelines set out by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. The request for quotes states the work must be completed within 30 days of being hired by the county.
