City looks to change purchasing ordinance
Friday, November 18, 2011
The city has presented proposed changes to a purchasing ordinance, trying to address issues in bid processes that have recently caused problems at the council level.
At the Jefferson City Finance Committee meeting Thursday, Drew Hilpert, assistant city counselor, presented the proposed ordinance changes as “a work in progress,” saying he expects more changes to happen before the next committee meeting. Hilpert said the changes are the result of some issues at the council level recently about selection of an architectural firm for a new fire station.
