Bell County Commissioners met for their regular meeting on Monday, June 12, and approved all items on the agenda.
Bell County Commissioners authorized the County Auditor to advertise for bids for PennzSuppress D or equivalent. This bid advertisement is due to the fact the current Bell County contractor is unable to source PennzSuppress D.
Commissioners approved the purchase of 20 portable electrical distribution panels for the Bell County Expo Center. This purchase will be for $34,319.82 from Bluebonnet Electrical Supply.  Funding for this project is approved by the Bell County Youth Fair Executive Board and is provided from the Bingo Reserve Fund.
Heartland Quarries’ one bid for Stone RipRap (Erosion Control) was rejected by County Commissioners. The bid was rejected due to bid pricing being nearly the same as a recently awarded contract with Heartland Quarries for Stone RipRap.
Texas Prisoner Transportation Services was approved to be awarded as the vendor for the Prisoner Extradition and Transportation Services for Bell County Jail Facilities. County Commissioners approved this as the first of four one-year renewals with Texas Prisoner Transportation Services.
