County commission accepts senior meal bid

Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--The Brown County Commission Monday accepted a bid from a Horton business to provide the meals for the county's senior Meals on Wheels program for 2024.

On the recommendation of County Services for the Elderly Director Wanda Davis, the Commission voted 2-1 to accept a bid from Lentz Express in the amount of $7.00 per meal, which is the same price the business currently charges to provide the meals. Commission Chairman Bill Pollock cast the lone dissenting vote.

It was among two bids opened last week. The Pizza Bakery, also of Horton, submitted a bid in the amount of $8.50 per meal.

Seniors currently pay $3 per meal, with the county paying the remainder of the cost.

The meals are delivered Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and inclement weather.
