Lighting Cost

Did us taxpayers pay the entire cost, or did we split the $ 48,000.00 with the City’s partner Cypruss Development since Soho is a jointly owned development? If the cost was $ 96,000.00 - taxpayers got hammered. Did we put this project out to bid per State law? What are the details?

State Law

Kevin, I feel a little silly even posting this, because you already know everything. Projects less than $50,000 aren't mandated to be put out to bid per state law. (Code of Alabama 1975, Section §39-1-1, et.al).

Why?

That seems a but mean spirited. Or am I misinterpreting it?

Bid Law

State of Alabama Bid Law

Per Section 41-16-20 of the Code of Alabama, any purchase request or contract for like or similar products and/or services that total $15,000 or more must be competitively bid (with limited exceptions). A purchase request or contract cannot be split up to avoid the $15,000 bid threshold. Review Alabama’s Competitive Bid Law.
