that is why I dont do much bid work they go for the lowest and dont care about quailty like i said last year I lost a $150,000 job state funded bid that I had for 6 years with out them ever bidding it out, till last year when they bid it out the winning bid was 40% cheaper then me 6 years ago. I stick with smaller companies and customers that like quailty. well sorry to hear it and glad it did not hurt you in any way

Low bid $42,900 season ($15.12 per acre!!!!)

Now our rates may be alittle on the high side, but the low bids are down right disturbing.

So much for bidding city projects ever again.. Not worth the time.

You may want to stay in touch . it seems to low . they may be dissatisfied with the outcome than call to have it rebid . I've seen it done in Ohio a few times .
