Douglas County Commissioners met on Monday, Sept. 10, with Presiding Commissioner Lance Stillings, Commissioner Craig Cunningham, and County Clerk Karry Davis present for the session.
In the meeting, commissioners approved a payment to Septagon Construction Management, Inc. for construction management fees and expenses for the new jail facility. The payment of $13,850 was made from the Law Enforcement Sales Tax Fund.
Commissioners opened one bid that had been submitted by Stopp & VanHoy, of Creve Coeur, Mo., a CPA and financial firm interested in handling a one-year financial audit for 2017. Since the commissioners only received one bid for the task, the audit item was tabled for further discussion. The bid from Stopp & VanHoy was for $16,000.
Stillings and Cunningham also reviewed two bids that had been submitted for installation of rubber treads on the courthouse steps. Bid submissions were from Flooring Systems, Inc. for $16,971, and Zickel Flooring, $15,105.
Commissioners awarded the job to the low bidder, Zickel Flooring, of Springfield, Mo.
