The current crop of county Commissioners have demonstrated another flash of genius in the multimillion dollar contract they awarded to out of towners.

Instead of investing our tax money in a local contractor they went out of town. Now those dollars are not going to benefit appling county.

We have a lot of good people who want to work here and this move makes 0 sense.

Come July 31 take a long look at the candidates running for re-election and remember this farce.

and remember to remove Charlie leggett out of the fifth.
He is just there to draw his little salary and get health insurance. He is not there to serve the interests of the people.

A little lower bid.

When people bid on jobs, the lowest bidder is the one who gets the contract. The Chairman did the right thing in breaking the tie!! He followed the rules as he was supposed to. The commissioners who voted for the local contractor, who had the lower bid, were not following the rules.

So, if "the good ole local boy", is going to get the job, no matter what the bids are; why should there be a bidding process? Answer: BECAUSE IT IS THE LAW.

Mr. Hiers, or any of the other contractors, do not help my financial situation. So let him understand that, when he writes another letter to the local newspaper complaining and being a crybaby!!

So what you are saying, is that it should've went to a local company. Even though they were i higher bidder? Hmm that makes perfect sense to me.(Heavy on the sarcasm )

How many times has heirs got the bid and then didnt correctly finish the job, but yet still get paid?? And how many employees does he have that are illegal imagrants that pay no taxes?? Maybe these are a few questions you should be asking!!
I think $65,000 difference is quite a substantial!!
Once again our county has proved to be smarter than the average "Sophie"!

Maybe you are not smart enough to do the math but there are alot more that factors in than you would understand.By the way lowest bid is not always the best.We just finished a state job that was 3.2 million and was not lowest.By the way are all these code names because you got something to hide.

Why don t you put your big man pants on and not hide behide a code name.By the way nobody has to work here,and some have other responsibilities that warrant more pay.And by the way our turn over rate is very low,must be doing something right.I will tell you this,it probably would be the BEST THING for you to keep hiding, after that comment about my employee.

I don't know who you are and if you were so scared but to hide behind a fake name....to make some of the comments you have on here, there must not be much to you!!! BUT I would LOVE for you to put on your "BIG PERSON" panties and tell me this face to face, but then again....I feel I have had that conversation with you on the phone regarding you husband and damn sure don't appreciate you putting crap like that on this site!!! I don't generally stoop to another persons level on things that are beneath me, but I'm calling you out as this "trucker" is no whore. I would never mess up with ANYONE'S family...I'm a better person than that. TO BAD it's still such a small/shallow little town, that a WOMAN working in a man's world is accused of sleeping with everyone they work with...but more power to you...I am who I am and will not change for you or anything...I LOVE MY JOB and HAPPY I HAVE ONE...and will continue to work here as long as they will let me...and ENJOY EVERY DAY OF IT...and now more so when in the TRUCK thinking of how much it pisses you off!!!!

Then what's the point of bidding? Also if you Didn't have the lowest bid what factor played in for your company to get it. Calling me out on my "code name " does not bother me.

Well I guess BEST THING got caught on her statements about being a single mom on another forum I checked out all comments being made above before I decided to comment on the situation and sure enough that is what she said I guess she doesn't know what she or he is?? now she has all her comments on forums blocked so that tells me information she is trying to provide is probably no where near the truth. So Janet looks like you are 100% right in this conversation. Its a shame people try to downgrade someone who is out trying to make an honest living we all have to communicate with our fellow employees in order to get jobs done that is just a fact of life. By comments made I believe that person is not who they claim they are and that they or their spouse is still working at your company. Just keep your head up and keep doing your job God rewards the people in life that do right. As for the bid I am sorry your company did not get it. I am a firm believer in helping your own community first before going outside the area to employ others. Only go outside if no one around your area is qualified for the work requested if the bid is high see if there is anyway it can be adjusted or any items cut before going outside of your own community.

Liar??? Did i accuse you of anything or simply ask a question?? I travel to different buisnesses all over baxley and surrounding counties for work and I tend to hear the same things from different people. I have heard that someone else usually has to finish jobs that you finished "incorrectly". AGAIN that's just what I've heard from different people so don't get hostile just because someone inquires or ask questions. I still see no justification as to why you thought it should have been awarded to you since the difference was substantially higher.
