County receives heating system bids
In a special meeting Tuesday morning, the Board of County Commissioners opened bids for the courthouse and Social Services heating system project.
The board received separate instead of combined bids for mechanical and electrical work. No decision was made Tuesday morning; the bids would be up for discussion during the board’s June meeting.
C&C Plumbing & Heating, of Minot, was the lowest bidder for mechanical work at $250,975. Johnson Plumbing, of Rugby, was the second-lowest at $298,800. Mowbray & Son, of Minot, was the highest bid at $397,982, and Agassiz Mechanical was the second-highest at $370,125.
Bartsch Electric, of Rugby, was the lowest bidder for electrical work at $86,800. Burlington Electric was the second-lowest at $179,490, while Home & Electric Solutions was the highest bidder at $277,616.
The board noted there was a combined $337,775 between the two lowest bidders in each category.
With an expected completion date of Oct. 31 of this year, the project would involve cutting where the current heat registers are in the building and replacing them with electric thermal storage room heating units.
The building is currently heated by steam heat, however one boiler is no longer working. The board wanted to see what the cost of a new heating system would be.
