Dallas Co Supervisors 1-9

The Dallas County Board of Supervisors convened Tuesday morning in regular session.

The meeting began with several items dealing with the Secondary Roads Department, starting with the review of bids for the County Road F25 paving project. Six bids were received for the project, and the low bid of $2,531,914 from InRoads, LLC was accepted. Next, the Board approved the purchase of two 2018 Chevy Silverado flatbed trucks from Shottenkirk Chevrolet for $63,361. They also approved an out of state travel request by County Engineer Al Miller, so he can attend the National Association of Engineers conference in April.

The Supervisors then approved the issuance of $14.7 million in general obligation capital loan notes relating to the bond referendum for the new law enforcement center, as well as accepting a one-year lease for the facility at 918 Court Street in Adel, which currently houses the Department of Motor Vehicles and driver’s license station. The Board then went into a closed session to discuss pending litigation regarding the bid process for construction of the law enforcement center.

When they reconvened, they were informed by County Attorney Wayne Reisetter that an irregularity was revealed by the lawsuit regarding the bid letting process for the structural steel bid package that violated the law. As such, they needed to void the contract awarded and rebid the project one last time. The bid notice will post today, and the deadline for bids will be March 1st. The Board will review the new bids at their meeting on March 6.
