Consideration & Action on Budget Committee Recommendation
The Budget Committee recommended to the full Board to retain the $25,000 bid bond as damages from 3 Rivers Bus Service for withdrawing their transportation contract bid.

The Board heard confirmation from 3 Rivers representative, Verlyn Rant, that their company did withdraw the bid after realizing they would lose more money honoring the bid than they would  pay in damages.  They requested that the Board only retain half of the damages.

Pronold moved to retain the $25,000 bid bond as damages from 3 Rivers Bus Service for withdrawing their transportation contract bid.  Peach seconded.  Polled vote was 6-0 in the affirmative with 3 absent.  Motion carried.

Crowley moved to adjourn at 2:20 p.m.  Ferguson seconded.  Motion carried.
