CY 4-2484 "YOUR GAS COMPANY" ALGONA What's Wrong Taxpayers In the Algona Advance of Oct. 3rd, 1961 appeared a Legal Notice -i Notice of Letting that was signed by Marc Moore, County Auditor. This legal notice called for sealed bids on a 3-bottom farm tractor that was to be used by the County Farm and all bids would be received until 2-00 o'clock P.M. Oct. 12th, 1961. The meeting was delayed until the County Engineer arrived. Four bids were opened at the letting, all accompanied by a certified check of $100. After the bids were opened and prices announced less 1952 Super M. Farmall tradein, the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors asked bidders present to leave the room which the bidders politely did. Then after some elapsed time the County Auditor came to the door and told the bidders present that the Farmall tractor from a Whittemore dealer had been purchased. He also asked unsuccessful bidders present if they wanted their certified check back. The dealers present reentered the room where the Board of Supervisors (5) all present along with the County Auditor and the County Engineer were still convening. So one of the unsuccessful bidders asked why the Board of Supervisors was not accepting the low bid. (The low bid was by Linde Implement Co. of Swea City for.$1488.03 difference between new 3-plow tractor and used Super M Farmall). The bid the County Auditor announced was accepted was for $1950 difference between a 460 Int. and the Super M from Whittemore Imp. Co. of Whittemore and after some checking it was understood that the tractor had been purchased from a non-franchised dealer at Whittemore. The low bid dealer also said that he would furnish a new cultivator along with the new tractor and trade in the old cultivator for still less difference than the bid that has been accepted for tractor only, but to no avail. After considerable questions and answers from unsuccessful bidders present, the County Engineer said that items had been purchased before out of the county, and the Auditor said the board had made the decision and they proceeded with other business at hand. For this particular purchase, some bid forms were delivered to SOME of the Kossuth County Implement Dealers only. Other dealers did not receive bid forms upon which to make their bid. We feel, in cases of farm equipment purchases by Kossuth County, that all franchised dealers in the County should receive bid forms and that the low bid should be successful. Now we the undersigned feel that equipment that is available in Kossuth County should be purchased in the county where the taxpayer pays his due share of taxes and especially when the bid is approximately $462 less — What do you fellow TAXPAYERS THINK — DO WE NEED TO WONDER WHY OUR TAXES ARE HIGH? Just think of this deal only. Just who is running Kossuth County? We wonder, don't you? JOE BRADLEY EQUIPMENT — Algona ERNIE-WILLIAMS IMPLEMENT CO. —Algona ALGONA IMPLEMENT CO. — Algona BUSCHER BROS.
