MOUNT VERNON — Knox County Commissioners met to hear opening bids Monday for a chlorination-dechlorination project for Pleasant View Acres wastewater treatment. No bids were offered that were within acceptable range of the engineer’s $41,180 estimate and new plans will be considered.
Commissioners Teresa Bemiller, Roger Reed and Allen Stockberger met with Harry Winfrey of Richland Engineering Limited and the sole bidder, Jim Finnegan of Finnegan Construction in Shelby. Finnegan offered a bid of $60,000 and attended the meeting knowing his bid was high and explained his concern.
Winfrey informed the commissioners that he spoke with representatives of Terra Valley Excavating of Bellville and reported that they did not offer a bid because they would not be within the 10 percent required by the Ohio Revised Code.
