Five sheriff sedans to be refurbished

County to chip in to cover Y2K upgrades

The Washington County Commissioners voted to pay $2,875, or 10 percent, of the cost to upgrade software used by the County Commuter.

The $28,750 cost is needed to make the software Y2K-compliant to prevent problems. The rest of the cost will be paid by state and federal grants.

BFI gets contract

The County Commissioners unanimously awarded a $34,539 contract to BFI Waste Systems of North America, Hagerstown, to remove trash at 18 county facilities. Waste Management had the contract for the last three years.

 

Trash renewal denied

In a separate action, the commissioners voted to reject a request from Waste Management of Shenandoah Valley, W.Va., to renew a contract to pick up trash at five transfer stations.

Waste Management had requested an increase of about 28 percent, or about $42,000, over the current year.

The county will seek new bids for the contract.
