NEW BUSINESS:

President Pratl gave the floor to Attorney Stillman. Attorney Stillman reported that due to some questions regarding the bid document form, a modified bid document was sent to the bidders and additional time allowed for a subsequent bid opening on May 27th. Because of the continuing issues with the procedure process, Attorney Stillman advised an abundance of caution and recommended rejecting all bids and reposting the invitation to bid.  This will allow everyone the same opportunity to submit their bids.

 

Upon the advice of counsel, President Pratl called for a motion to reject all bids submitted for the Tower Park project.  Motion was made by Commissioner Crout and seconded by Commissioner Conrad.
