Sidney, Neb., City Council members are reconsidering the specifications for a golf-course-irrigation project after receiving only a single bid, which was higher than the amount they'd budgeted. The construction company submitted a bid of $128,000 for a performance bond, while the project budget called for $100,000. A survey of potential bidders by the project's design firm revealed that more companies might bid if they were allowed more time to complete the project.
