#2-FIRM SELECTION TO COMPLETE BIOMASS ENERGY FEASIBILITY STUDY
Connie advised that four Requests for Proposals (RFP) were received: Wert Brader Inc., Renewable Energy Solutions ($72,758), TSS Consultants ($88,979), and The Beck Group ($85,000). The Beck Group wasn’t the lowest price of the three, but they went into great detail in their tasks and this is the recommended firm. There are 13 different tasks that they will do to complete the study. The Beck Group is willing to work with Mr. Bill Carlson of Carson City, which is important as Bill C. has a great deal of knowledge and experience. Joni Eastley of Nye County highly recommended Beck. Bill C. has worked in the timber industry in the western U.S. Mike Baughman commented that the representatives of A Power have reviewed the proposals and their top two recommendations were The Beck Group and TSS. The MOA between LC and A Power refers to an amount not to exceed $95,000 for the study. The funding is on deposit with the LC Treasurer. Paul made a motion to approve The Beck Group, allow for contract negotiations, and to authorize his signature on the contract when it’s completed; seconded by Bill. All voted in favor.
Bill called for public comment. None is offered.
There being no further business for the Board to attend to, Ronda made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 8:46 a.m.; seconded by Tommy. All voted in favor.
