I recently submitted a bid for 5 water towers to mow and trim around them. The biggest one had about 2 acres to mow, all wide open no trees. My problem is the water company sent me a report of all the bids and how much each company bid. The lowest was 200.00 and the highest was 750.00 I bid 325.00 and obviously did not get it. Is that crazy or what how much it varies in price. The drive distance from the first one to the last is 35 miles. I think this is a major problem when you have 550.00 dollar difference from top to bottom. These are in southeastern IN so if any of you guys on this forum are from this area please chime in with your opinion.
