Washington County Board of Commissioners briefs

April 17, 2013

Leachate hauling bids submitted incorrectly, rejected

After receiving several incorrectly filed bids, the Washington County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday voted 4-1 to reject all one-year proposals for leachate hauling and removal for its Solid Waste Department.

The services will be put out for rebid due to an informality that all the vendors improperly completed the written unit price section of their proposals, according to county documents.

A two-month extension with the county’s current contractor was granted by the commissioners, pushing back the contract expiration date from May 1 to July 1 while the rebidding process takes place.

Bid approved for sheriff’s office uniforms

Red the Uniform Tailor, Inc., of Lakewood, N.J., was awarded a $57,140 contract Tuesday to supply uniforms for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The one-year contract approved unanimously by the county Board of Commissioners tentatively commences May 18, with an option for the county to renew up to two additional years.

The company will supply items such as new shirts, trousers, jackets and hats.

Approval by the commissioners was contingent upon the department agreeing that the purchase was something that it wanted to spend its money on.

Duvinage incentive modification granted

The Washington County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a motion to modify baseline employment numbers for a Hagerstown business receiving a conditional loan-to-grant from the county.

Duvinage LLC, located at 60 W. Oak Ridge Drive, has experienced a delay in obtaining an additional loan to make facility improvements to support new equipment and operating costs, which has caused the company to reduce staff from 22 employees to 19 as a cost-saving measure.

The commissioners approval allows Duvinage to use 19 employees as its baseline figure in the agreement that states the company must reach the 60-job mark by the end of 2015.
