Commissioners award decking bid to Craig Steel despite higher bid

MC Commissioners-150The Moffat County Commissioners have awarded a bid for bridge decking to Craig Steel.  The decking work will be done on a bridge on Moffat County Road 19.  The commissioners reviewed two bids for the project.  While Craig Steel’s was not the lowest bid, it was only about $300 higher than the bid from a company in Colorado Springs.  The commissioners have the discretion to discard the low bid in favor of a local company, if the bids are close.  There was less than a 2% difference in the bid costs, so the commissioners decided to award it to the local business.  The cost of the project will be just over $20,000.
