Payne County commissioners open bids on road materials

By John Filonow

STILLWATER, Okla. — Payne County commissioners opened bids for materials needed for the road districts for the next six months Monday.

Approximately 35 vendors placed bids in 18 categories. Several companies, like the Railroad Yard of Stillwater, Kerns Construction, Inc. of Stillwater and Sunbelt Equipment and Supply of Meeker, had bids for more than one item.

County Clerk Linda Hatfield said her office will be working on preparing a spreadsheet to present to commissioners.

Commissioners will probably decide on the bids at the Dec. 17 meeting, but must decide by the end of the year, Hatfield said.

There are two commission meetings left, Dec. 17 and 28.

Some of the items being bid on are concrete products, petroleum products, tires and tubes and cold patch materials.
