No action taken on building demolition in Appleton by Board of Commissioners
by Reed Anfinson
Swift County’s Board of Commissioners did not act on the delayed bid award for the demolition of three buildings in Appleton at its October 2 meeting.
At its meeting Septe mber 4, commissioners awarded the bid to T&K Kennedy Excavating, Inc., of Benson, despite the bid possibly being $40,000 higher than the bid of MAAC, Inc., of Montevideo. Two reasons were cited for taking Kennedy’s bid over MAAC’s. They said it was more detailed and that Kennedy was local (a county taxpayer.)
Kennedy’s base bid was $217,080 while MAAC’s was $177,112.
MAAC President Denny Larson came to the county board’s September 18 meeting seeking an explanation of its decision to award Kennedy the bid. After hearing from him, the board decided to put the demolition bid on hold while it discussed the situation with its attorney.
