OSKALOOSA — The Mahaska County Board of Supervisors received one bid for a channel repair project during its meeting Monday.

McCulley Construction was the only contractor to submit a bid; the bid was $10,360. The Natural Resources Conservation Service estimate for the project, located near Beacon, was $14,530.

The supervisors also discussed the republication of county ordinances.
