The North Judson Town Board approved the first reading of an ordinance that establishes bidder requirements when the Board seeks bids on a project. The ordinance sets guidelines and wording on companies bidding on projects. Normally the Board accepts the lowest bid for a project. This ordinance lets the Board accept the second lowest bid if the lowest bid does not meet bid specifications of the project and if the bidder is not a responsible bidder.
In other news:
The Board will not seek bids for a mower for the cemeteries. The same contractor who performed the task last year will not raise his fee this year so the Board does not need to seek a different contractor.
