Southern States wins heating oil contract

September 15, 1998

A Falling Waters, W.Va., company will provide heating oil for Washington County buildings this winter, the Washington County Commissioners decided Tuesday.

The commissioners voted unanimously to award the contract to the low bidder, Southern States, in a piggyback purchase with the Washington County Board of Education.

Southern States will charge 8.25 cents per gallon above the base oil price, which beat out next-lowest bidder AC&T Co. Inc. of Hagerstown by 32 cents, according to county purchasing agent Karen R. Luther.

It has been common practice for the county to join with the school board to get a better price on its heating oil, she said.
