Meeting: Ferdinand Town Council

The Ferdinand Town Council met Friday and:

• Opened bids for the surplus electrical equipment that will be available after the town completes some upgrades. The council received two bids: one from the Solomon Corporation of Solomon, Kansas, which offered to take the equipment off the town’s hands free of charge; and one from Emerald Transformer of McKinney, Texas, which submitted a bid for only the transformers for $8,505.13.

• Approved seeking quotes for a new trash truck. The town’s current truck is from 1996 and is starting to not run well. The quotes will be opened at the council’s regular February meeting, set for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19.
