The Board of Pacific County Commissioners intends to contract with a qualified legal newspaper to serve as the official newspaper for publishing all of Pacific County’s legal and other official notices for one year beginning July 1, 2013. And, since some notices must be published in a legal newspaper (in general circulation) in a specific area, the Board will also consider contracting with one or more qualified legal newspapers for publishing area-specific legal and official notices of Pacific County for the same one year term. Qualified proponents are invited to submit bids for serving as Pacific County’s official newspaper and/or legal newspaper for the specific area of the county within which the newspaper is generally circulated.

Bids timely and properly received will be publicly opened and read aloud by the Board of County Commissioners at the hour of 10:00 a.m., or soon thereafter, on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, in the Commissioners Meeting Room of the Pacific County Courthouse Annex located at 1216 W. Robert Bush Drive (US-101 and Pacific Avenue) in South Bend, Washington. (Any bid received after that time shall be null and void and shall be returned unopened to the bidder.)

Bids shall be submitted in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the name and address of the bidder and the words “BID FOR ADVERTISING AND PUBLICATION OF LEGAL AND OFFICIAL NOTICES” with “OFFICIAL COUNTY NEWSPAPER” and/or “AREA SPECIFIC NEWSPAPER,” as applicable, on the outside of the envelope. Specifications for this Call for Bids must be obtained by contacting the Clerk of the Board of Pacific County Commissioners at the Commissioners’ Office (Suite F-G) of the Courthouse Annex, PO Box 187, South Bend, WA, 98586-0187, or by telephone: 360/875-9337 or on our website

In awarding the contract(s), it shall be let to the best and lowest responsible bidder(s), giving consideration to the question of circulation with a view to giving publication of notices the widest publicity. The provisions of RCW 43.19.1911 will be utilized in determining the lowest responsible bidder(s).

The Board of Pacific County Commissioners reserves the right to reject any or all bids and to waive any or all irregularities.
