He stated <br />that three options which the County has for acquiring road machinery is to buy, to rent for 12 months <br />or less, or to lease-purchase within a five-year period. Regarding an addendum to the present <br />specifications, it was Mr. Hoy's opinion that it would be necessary to follow the statutory procedures <br />for advertising for bids if a change was to be made as requested earlier today by the Northwestern <br />Equipment Company. This would involve re-advertising for bids with time needed for publications in <br />the official newspaper. He felt that the most likely solution today is to continue with the bid process <br />as scheduled for June 19, 1984. The County reserves the right to reject any or all bids, and a <br />determination can be made next week whether bids should be re-advertised on a lease-purchase basis. <br /> <br />Discussion was again held on the National Association of Counties conference in Seattle, <br />Washington. Mr. Sondrall moved and Mr. Larson seconded to authorize Scott Krueger, Administrative <br />Assistant, to attend the conference at a cost of $784.00, this to be paid from his budget. The motion <br />carried on roll call vote with Mr. Larson, Mr. Sondrall and Mrs. Stanton voting "Aye"; Mr. Wieland <br />and Mr. Eckert opposing. <br /> <br />On motion by Mr. Larson and seconded by Mr. Eckert, the Chairman declared the meeting <br />adjourned. <br />
