Bids for Sheriff’s Office vehicles were opened in the County Clerk’s office at noon Friday, Oct. 11. Three bids were turned in for consideration.

“There are quite a variety of vehicles. I did that to confuse you,” Sheriff Bill McBride said.

“Did a good job,” the county’s legal advisor Dan Diepenbrock said, with a laugh.

Diepenbrock asked why the choice of Tahoes all of a sudden.

McBride explained, “Maintenance issues with trucks, heavier suspensions.”
