FUNKSTOWN -- Funkstown's second attempt at securing a trash-collection contract for the year continued Monday night with bid openings during the town council meeting.
The council is expected to vote on a contract during a special meeting July 19 at 6 p.m. in Town Hall. The new contract will be for Aug. 1 to June 30, 2011.
Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. read aloud figures from four bidders at Monday's meeting, but it wasn't clear who had the official low bid. Crampton said bids would have to be reviewed to ensure they meet bid criteria.
Town attorney Robert Kuczynski advised Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda Haynes not to make the bid documents public because they are part of contract negotiations.
