Supervisors Study Privatization Proposal

  Engineer Bill Mitchell says the county will still own the equipment and the contractor will maintain the equipment. If repairs total more than $500 the county will pay for them. The board will consider giving a private contractor either a one year contract with a one year renewal option, or give the contractor a two year contract. "That way if the contractor feels like, the two year contract may be a cost savings item for the board so if they guarantee a two year contract that may bring your price down a little bit," says Mitchell. The supervisors instructed Mitchell to advertise for proposals. Before they make a final decision they'll find out next month from the state board of contractors if the contractor the county hires needs a certificate of responsibility, which means the contractor must guarantee the work.
