The Marion County Board of Supervisors met in special session last Friday and awarded a contract to Comer Roofing for work on the Marion County Care Facility. Comer’s was the low bid at $38,491.12. Other bids received came from Carter Roofing ($39,664.27), Kooyman ($42,239) and Becker ($46,928). Care Facility Administrator Barb Adam wanted to ensure that the roof work was completed in a short amount of time, in the interest of the residents. Kooyman wrote in its addendum that it could have the project completed. The supervisors’ action awarded Comer the contract, if the time frame for completion met Adam’s standards. If not, the same action allowed Adam to contract with Kooyman. Hours after the meeting, Adam told the supervisors that Comer said the job could get done within two to three weeks.
