County awards bids

By Annette Brand

Delta County Commissioners awarded a bid on Dec. 4 to Hellman Motor Company for three 2018 Ford 150 trucks for the sheriff's office at a cost of $29,300 per unit.

Undersheriff Mark Taylor said he was ordering the trucks early to be in the front of the line for the outfitter so he could have the trucks on the road at the beginning of the year.

Ralph Clark, Road and Bridge District 3, explained the bid for two 50'6" sand sheds to be placed at two locations within Delta County Road and Bridge District 3. The bid includes site preparation, excavation, forms and concrete work.

The bid was awarded to Con Ex, LLC for $59,280. Work will begin in approximately five days.
