We recently heard that our opponents are alleging that we did not solicit bids for our downtown infrastructure and revitalization project. That’s false.

On April 21st, the bids were opened.
Our contract with the lowest responsible bidder, ELQ Industries, was executed on May 18, 2017. You can read more here.
