The November 1, 2016 of our mass transit board (sun metro or city council in another form) has two unfortunate items on it.
Sun metro staff sought approval for two $13 million dollar contracts with different firms. The contracts would be to provide engineering and management services relating to TXDOT and federal highway administration funding over a period of four years
It appears that the city will dole out work to the two firms depending upon current circumstances. It is not clear whether they are talking about a total of $26 million or they plan to use both firms to spend the $13 million.
That level of transparency would require a desire to tell us the complete story.
No talent in town?
Isn’t it a shame that in a city of this size they think that we don’t have the talent to do this with local firms?
We deserve better.
