The original bid for the construction of "the building was $18,162 by Red Dot Buildings, but the site selected necessitated run- ning sewer lines over half a block to avoid pumping sewage uphill, and addition- al concrete work an sewer lines to the hospital property line, and breaking out an old concrete slab at the site at an additional cost of $1,157. McNew Contracting Service was awarded the $2,905 water and sewer cons- truction contract. The firl was the only bidder on the work. The $1,563 in change order included closets, shelves, spotlights in the ambulance storage area, two hose bibs, ventilation in the bathroom, additional electrical outlets, a radio desk, three additional phone jacks, and two television outlet jacks. The county still faces additional expenditures for furnishing the facility's living quarters. No action On furniture purchases has been made. Charles McMakin of Red Dot Buildings discussed the construction changes with the commissioners before they approved them unanimously. The Court spent along portion of the Monday meeting canvassing the returns of the Nov. 2 general election. The court also approved purchase of four new cars for the sheriff's department with three old cars being traded in. The court's action was unanimous following a request by Sheriff J.W. Brownlow. Brownlow said the cars would not be delivered until after the first of the year. The court will advertise for bids. The court also heard a complaint by Edie Knuckles of FM 2892 in Precinct 4 concerning dispatching of fire trucks to a grass fire on her property. She told the court she had called the county jail to report the fire initially at 11:20 a.m. and no fire equipment arrived until after 1 p.m., and credited fire- fighting work by her and her neighbors with saving her home and a barn filled with hay. She said that when she called initially at ll:20, a dispatcher at the jail assured her a fire truck was on the way. She called again at noon, she said, and again was assured a truck was on the way. Finally, after 1 p.m., the Murchison Fire Department arrived, but the fire was out for all practical purposes, she told the court, occasionally breaking into tears. Told the county normally dispatches volunteer fire departments to such fires, and that the county does not maintain a fire department, Ms. Knuckles demanded to know. "Why wasn't one sent to my fire?" No one on the court offered an explanation why a truck wasn't dispatched earlier. Larry Everett said he sent a truck as soon as he was informed of the fire, but could offer no explanation why word of the fire wasn't received earlier. Judge Winston Reagan said the county contributes $1,200 to 14 different volunteer fire departments each year, and calls on them to fight rural fires. "Somewhere a mistake was made. Normally we get to a fire," Reagan said. "Not Donnells Tells Prize Winners Drawing prizes given during Donnell's grand opening Saturday were announced this week by Mrs. Martha McManus. An A.M.
