Chia-Lin Chang, UND MPH EFR doctoral student and Michael Dulitz, COVID-19 public health data and analysis manager, provided an update on COVID-19. County engineer Nick West gave a brief summary of the excavator offer awarded to RDO on November 2, 2021 by the Grand Forks County Commission. Ironhide heavy equipment specialist Chris Landis said they are contesting the award of the offer. Jared Harshman, RDO Equipment Sales Professional, answered questions about the John Deere product. Haley Wamstad, state attorney, said the board has discretion over how to weigh the various factors outlined in the bid’s requirements. The guaranteed buyback price was part of the offer notice, so it would be up to the board to use it to select what you believe to be the lowest responsible offer. She said Ironhide could challenge the Commission’s decision by appealing it to the district court. No changes were made to the motion made on November 2, 2021 accepting RDO Equipment’s offer.
