Peterbilt, Inc., Kansas City, bid as follows: 2019 Peterbilt Model 367 dump truck – $137,821, trade allowance of $57,500 for a final trade difference of $80,321. Peterbilt of Council Bluffs, Iowa, bid a 2019 Peterbilt Model 367 dump truck – $128,536, trade allowance of $68,000 for a trade difference of $60,536. The final bids were from Westfall GMC Truck, Inc. Bid #1 was a MACK truck with drum brakes – $136,795, trade allowance of $40,000 for a trade difference of $96,795. Bid #2 was a MACK truck with disc brakes – 141,275, trade allowance of 40,000 for a trade difference of $101,275. Supervisor Meyer reviewed all bid specifications and found that the bid from Peterbilt of Council Bluffs failed to include the dump box, which disqualified their bid. They did provide a cost for the dump box that was not considered because it was after the provided bid time. When compared it still would have made their bid higher than KC Peterbilt. Supervisor Meyer recommended that the low bid from Peterbilt, Inc., Kansas City for a 2019 Peterbilt Model 367 Dump Truck – $137,821, trade allowance of $57,500 for a final trade difference of $80,321 be accepted by the commission.
