The bids in southern Indiana are gettin crazy. The county parks dept. took bids on mowing a park 3 acres,with lots of tree's , trash ,play ground equip, and people around alot. In 1993 I mowed it for $55.00 per time and it was way to low. Now in 2000 someone bid $ 39.50 per time they saw someone bid $40.00 last yearand dropped their bid $.50. I laughed and told the woman in charge of the parks at that rate in a few years they might be paying you. Work smarter not Harder.
