It will cost more for Winneshiek County to use propane this winter. County officials have accepted a bid of $1.73 per gallon from Agvantage of Decorah. Their previous cost last year was $1.26 per gallon.
However, the county received bids from three companies--and all were in the same range as the lowest bid.
The propane is used by the county at seven county-owned sites around the county.
