MD of Pincher Creek Dust Control contract awarded to Sinnott Farm Services Ltd.


Chris Davis

At their March 24 meeting council for the MD of Pincher Creek No. 9 awarded a 2015 Dust Control contract to Sinnott Farm Services Ltd. at a total tender price of $154,350 (including GST) for application of a minimum of 35,000 metres of dust control product. According to a report from CAO Wendy Kay, two tenders were received, but one was rejected because it wasn't signed or dated.

According to Kay's report, "Staff was requested by Council to obtain tenders for dust control, in an effort to determine whether we could increase our service level, for a similar cost to those services being totally provided by our Public Works crews. By utilizing Sinnott Farm Services Ltd. and our Public Works crews, we estimate that the dust control program can be completed in half the time that it takes by using just our own crews, resulting in an overall savings of approximately $18,000."
