Council debates rules regarding low bids

Email

The Park Rapids City Council accepted a low bid for a new squad car from Walker Ford, even though it was just $100 less than the local Park Rapids Ford bid.

City officials say the city's hands are tied because of the city's ordinance.

"The last squad car was purchased in 2007 and they're all well beyond 100,000 miles," said police chief Terry Eilers.

He requested bids for a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria squad car.
