Whitley court to rebid on ambulance

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

The Whitley County Fiscal Court will rebid for a 2013 ambulance.

Court members made that decision to reject all bids and start the process over during a special meeting Friday morning. The decision was made after Judge/Executive Pat White Jr. told the court there were errors in some of the bids.

Four bids were sent to the court for the ambulance. During the brief discussion, White mentioned that “three or four bids had serious errors.” He added one, and possibly two of the bidders had listed their ambulance as a 2012 model, instead of the 2013 model the Fiscal Court had requested. In addition, White said one bidder had duplicate charges listed in their bid.

“I think it’s prudent to re-advertise,” he told court members.

The vote to reject and rebid was 4-0, with White and Magistrates David Myers, Roger Wells and Robbie Brown voting in favor.

The rebidding will be brought up again at the court’s regular meeting in September.

On Aug. 21, the court tabled the bids during their regular meeting in order to give court members more time to look at the ambulance specifications from the bidders. At that time, two bids had been received; one for $118,468 from Windfire Equipment, the other for $103,724.45 from Mid America.
