At a special-called Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting on Monday afternoon, magistrates voted unanimously to reject the bid, and then voted unanimously to re-bid the project. Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander said the bid was rejected for two reasons.
“The bid was a little bit over the amount that they had actually set in their original proposal. I’m talking about the [Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s] original proposal,” Alexander said. “And there were two documents missing from that bid packets that would cause us to have to re-bid that.”
At a regular meeting on Monday, July 21, magistrates chose Lanham Brothers of Owensboro – the only bidder on the project – pending the KyTC’s approval. Their proposed contract was for $299,687, about $18,000 more than the original estimate.
