MR. V0LK SEEKS LIGHT
ON COUNTY. BOARD'S ACTION
Bock Island, April 25. Editor Ar
gus: As a citizen, tax payer and con
tractor with 35 years' experience anil
some little standing in this communi
ty for integrity and fair dealing. I am
it a loss to know upon what grounds
our hid. on tiie county innrmary
building, which was $1,276 lower than
the next highest, was rejected, unless
the county has more money than it
knows what to do with.
1 understand that we were thrown
out on a technicality in the board s
not understanding from our bid
whether we or the county should do
the excavating. Why were we not,
as is customary at public lettuigs,
called in to explain that part? The
specifications near the end provided
in a clause for the county to do the
excavating, which, as I understood,
vas meant by the nrchitect. If the
ounty wished to save some of the
xpetise on the excavating item there
was opportunity to do it. Our figure
on the excavating was, all told, $275.
What alwmt the other $1,000 the tax
payers are compelled to pay the suc
cessful competitor? JOHN YOLK.
