Hopkins Co. Court OKs pickup purchase; tables decision on Civic Center ATM

User Rating: / 16

Hopkins County Commissioners Court approved a request from Sheriff Butch Adams to purchase two pickups for his department Monday and a request from Civic Center Manager Adam Teer to add a new credit card processor. Three bids for two 2014 or 2015 pickups were presented for commissioners’ consideration. East Texas Ford set its price at $22,487 per truck, Toliver Ford’s price was $22,910 and Sulphur Springs Dodge submitted a price of $25,047 per truck. Although East Texas Ford submitted the lowest bid, Adams recommended the county accept the bid from Toliver Ford because the trucks were already in stock and would not have to be ordered. Adam’s recommendation was approved and commissioners authorized the $45,820 purchase. In other matters, Teer got approval from the court to engage a new firm to handle credit card transactions at the Civic Center. Teer said the Civic Center has used a credit card processing service for a number of years with no problems, but the service does not have a provision for online transactions. A contract with the current provider will expire at the end of next year and Teer recommended commissioners approve the new service and notify the current provider of the Civic Center’s intent to not renew the current contract. A second request from the Civic Center manager was for the installation of an automated teller machine [ATM] in the lobby of the facility. He said the ATM would provide a convenience to patrons at the center. Currently, anyone needing to use an ATM would have to drive to a store that has an ATM. Commissioners wanted to study the request and agreed to recess the meeting until Tuesday morning.
