It was discussed that it would be clearer to continue the hearing until the release is received and then the document would be ready to be recorded.

 

Cmmr. Olsen/Bolender moved and seconded to continue the hearing for the utility easement removal for Star Lake Addition 2, Lots 152 & 153, 153 & 154, and 154 & 155 to May 2, 2000 at 10:30 a.m. Motion carried unanimously. B-aye; C-absent; O-aye.

BID AWARD RADIO SERVICES FOR 2000

Dave Loser, Equipment, Rental & Revolving Fund Manager, reported he evaluated the two bids and found there was one error on the 2nd bid item for Pacific Electronics of Lacey. They listed the price at $18.80 and it should have been $118.80. They did not cover the Countys repeater. The County has known that parts arent easily available for the older RCA repeater and that it will need to be replaced in the next couple of years. They also would not cover one old Motorola, but given their rates it is recommended they be awarded the contract. Two of Pacific Electronics references were contacted and had good things to say about the company.

 

Cmmr. Cady/Olsen moved and seconded to award the radio service maintenance contract to Pacific Electronics in Lacey at the prices quoted. Motion carried unanimously. B-aye; C-aye; O-aye.
