FUNKSTOWN -- Funkstown Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. changed the awarding of the town's trash- and yard waste-collection contract after town officials sorted out who was the actual low bidder.
Crampton said Tuesday that Key Sanitation of Frederick, Md., will get the contract.
At Monday night's Town Council meeting, the council voted 4-2 to award the contract to Apple Valley Waste, whom they believed at the time to be the low bidder. Apple Valley, of Kearneysville, W.Va., holds the current contract.
Later in the meeting, Bob Clark, president of Key Sanitation, said he believed his bid was the lowest.
After some discussion, Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda L. Haynes said Key did have the low bid, but she had noted Apple Valley as the low bidder because the town wanted to keep trash pickup on Thursdays. Key wanted to collect trash on Saturdays.
Clark said he would get back to the town Tuesday after determining whether he could collect trash on Thursdays.
