When Cove Road repair bids were opened Tuesday morning, July 3, Idaho County found only one contractor willing to perform the project.
Idaho County Road & Bridge department head Gene Meinen found the paperwork provided by Cook & Sons Construction of White Bird was in order, so the county commissioners approved the bid — nearly $140,000.
The Cove Road repair is one of seven for which the county has pursued grant funding through FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) in connection with damage done during the 2017 spring melt season. Previously, the Free Press reported March 20 the county secured the Cove Road funding commitment.
