County rejects elevator bids


WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County Board has rejected all bids for work to update the 11 elevators in county buildings.

Improvements will still be made to bring the elevators up to state code, but the work will be contracted out in smaller portions.

County Administrator Larry Kleindl said he had hoped to see favorable bid amounts by bundling all the projects into one bid. "That doesn't appear to have happened."
