A Park Rapids business owner is miffed that his bid for new signs at the municipal liquor store was passed over on what he says is a technicality.


Larry Engel, owner of Engel Sign Company, maintains he would have been the successful bidder if the vendors had been on a level playing field.

City officials say they advertised for bids, provided specifications and awarded the low bid to Fargo-based Indigo Signs at a cost of $27,667.80.
