UNITED DISPOSAL DISTRICT RECEIVES BIDS FOR NEW LANDFILL
Today’s Blaine County Journal quoted district landfill coordinator Clay Vincent as saying that this estimate was “to move 350,000 to 400,000 cubic feet of dirt” and that the bids were given to site engineer, Barry Damschen of Helena to review and make sure that they were in compliance with the specs and all the related paperwork was in order. Vincent further went on to say that the Disposal District was already starting the next phase of the project which is erecting a building, starting the concrete work, and doing other related preparation work at the site. The Disposal District also must begin upgrading the roads from the Clear Creek turn off and from Hi-Way 2 east of Havre. It appears that Vincent also couldn’t resist taking a stab at the “local” contractors for bidding higher than other contractors that have to move their equipment long distances and pay for room and board for their employee’s. Pick up a copy of today’s Blaine County Journal and read the story for yourself and give us your impression.
Again, we at the Corrector wonder why this story wasn’t covered by our local Havre Daily “News”? We recommend that our readers subscribe to the weekly Blaine County Journal where the Corrector first saw this landfill story. Unlike the Havre paper it is a quality paper chock full of local stories instead of Associated Press reprints.
