Crook County, Oregon, intends to adopt an ordinance making findings of a class special procurement, authorizing the direct award of public contracts for heavy equipment repair services.  The proposed findings are that authorizing the direct engagement, without a competitive process, of brand-certified repair facilities for heavy equipment substantially promotes the public interest of conserving limited public resources of time, equipment, and funds; and that such procurements are unlikely to promote favoritism in the award of public contracts.  In accordance with Crook County Code 3.12.070 and ORS 279B.085, the County will accept written comments on the proposed ordinance, its findings, or the class special procurement at 300 NE Third Street, Attn:  County Counsel’s Office, Prineville, Oregon 97754.  Written comments must be received by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
