I went to my second bid letting yesterday.
Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Bob Miller had requested prices for a new street sweeper.
Three bids were received:
- $253,700 for an Elgin street sweeper from R.N.O.W., Inc.
- $267,622 for one with the manufacturer unclear from Schwarze Industries
- $307,719.25 for a street sweeper from Standard Equipment
There were enough exceptions that Miller decided he needed some time to sort out the differences.
