Greene County Commissioners reject bids for pest and rodent control

Friday, July 5, 2024

At their first meeting of the month on July 2, the Greene County Commissioners had a short agenda and all commissioners in attendance. They spoke briefly in regards to the pest and rodent control bids that they had received last month, with President Nathan Abrams making a motion to reject them at this time.

President Abrams was worried that the timing of the plans and the expected workload was not quite clear when the bids were first presented, and he stated that he “really doesn’t want someone to get into something that they don’t understand what is going to be expected of them...”

It was mentioned that the bids would be reopened when some of the buildings and additions were completed, so a better knowledge of the workload could be provided beforehand.

There was also talk of making the change from an annual pest and rodent control bid to a three year bid due to the simplicity of not having to go through the bid process every year.

In other business:

The minutes from their June 18 meeting were approved.

The claims were approved by the commissioners along with the payroll docket.

The county attorney’s copy release was discussed at length, and eventually given over to County Attorney Marvin Abshire to decide at his discretion.

The meeting was then adjourned.

The next regular meeting of the Greene County Commissioners will be held July 16 at 9:30 a.m. in the Commissioner’s Room on the third floor of the Greene County Courthouse. A video option will be available at the “Greene County, Indiana, Government” channel on YouTube.
