CRANE AWARD RECONSIDERED 4-20-15 LMS
According to a press release from the office of County Attorney Bruce Withers the Lemhi County Commissioners met on Friday, April 17, and voted to sustain an objection filed against the Commissioner’s March 23rd award of a crane contract bid.
Withers said, “As part of the Rattlesnake Bridge project, the Board had requested bids for required crane work. The Board, working through Northwest Engineering Service, had received bids from four different crane companies, and accepted the bid of Mountain Crane Service of Salt Lake City, Utah.
One of the bid participants, Inland Crane, Inc., of Boise, Idaho, filed an objection to the Board’s decision to award the bid to Mountain Crane.”
Withers said that based on the information received from Inland and Mountain as well as a report from Ray Eldridge, an independent consulting engineer with Deere & Ault of Boise, Idaho, the Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to sustain the objection of Inland and reconsider the crane portion of the project at a later date.
