does anyone else in the Hilltowns find this odd? Wrong, even?

October 29, 2009

The washed sand contract for the town of Blandford was awarded to a company from Montgomery that can supposedly under bid all others by FIVE whole dollars? When all the other bids were within about $2 of each other? Odd, because the difference in price for the chipped stone was much less.  So I can see that the prices for the stone is less anyway, but it is even less percentage-wise.  

Oh and how is it that a place in Montgomery can deliver cheaper than other places closer to the requesting town, including one in the town itself?  Sounds questionable to me.  Did they underbid just to get the contract secured?.  Do they plan on just increasing in to whatever they need to when the time comes, thereby inevitably raising the price no matter what was agreed on?  Does anyone know more about this?

How many of you realize that this contract went to the relatives of  a tenant of one of the selectman??
