    yes, landed the contract for the school district.. saw it on the board meeting minutes tonight.

    Motion by Funkhouser to accept snow removal bid from Genuine Service in amount of $300.00/hr snow
    plowing, $805.00/hr skid loader use, and $910.00/ton of sand or salt. Hempel seconded the motion and
    the motion carried unanimously.

    Is that a typo or are you using multiple skid steers at 805 an hour??

    I'm guessing there are multiple pieces of equipment in each of those prices.

    $300 an hour...really? I've been in the snow removal business in Omaha for 17 years and have NEVER seen those rates. Especially a school district that always goes low bid. There most be something were missing here.

    ok, my last post was a joke too. you can get on any schools board meeting minutes and find out any bids they accepted, you can even see teachers salaries in the public papers. i just made up the numbers. but maybe next year ill use them.
