Valley County Commissioners had an eventful discussion and decision meeting on June 21. During the meeting, they approved a couple of bids and the appointment of individuals to various county boards.
The first bid the commissioners approved was a bid by Perfect 10 Roofing to rebuild the roof on the Courthouse. Their bid of $156,000 was accepted and construction is due to begin in mid-July and be completed in August.
The bid submitted by Zerbe Brothers for two tractors was also accepted. The tractors will be used by the Valley County Road Department. The bid includes a 2016 New Holland Tractor for $88,000 and a 2015 New Holland for $92,500.

The scope of the potential project runs from where the road begins at Ezzie’s Westend to Scotty Pride Road. It would also include parts of 7th Street North, spanning from the last house on the northern end to the intersection where 7th Street North meets Airport Road.
