Commissioners reject equipment bids

Roosevelt County commissioners voted unanimously to reject all bids for rough stock equipment for the Roosevelt County Special Events Arena at a special meeting Thursday in the Commission Room of the county courthouse.

County Manager Charlene Webb said the lowest bid came from W&W Rodeo and Livestock Systems for $46,094.

Webb said the equipment would include four bucking chutes and pens and alleys leading to the chutes.

Commissioners Kendell Buzard and Scott Burton said they would like to see the money better spent than discuss buying the equipment again next year after they have seen what venues the arena has drawn in.

Commissioner Jake Lopez said his only concern was where to keep the equipment when it is not in use.

Commissioner Bill Cathey was absent from the proceedings.
