Valley Viewpoints: County attorney unfair

by Town Supervisor Edward Williamson of Granby

Residents of Oswego County read the front page and page 5 of the Sept. 1, 2012 issue of The Valley News. On page 5, Richard Mitchell advertised and I quote, “The County must go with the lowest bidder.”

That seems odd when about two weeks ago the county awarded the Imaging bid with document to (IQS) Info Quick Solutions, which was the second highest out of five bids and could cost the county taxpayers between $180,000 to $300,000.

Where were the honesty and consistent rules by Richard Mitchell or our 15 legislators who voted to award such a high bid? I guess it matters who your friends are.

A town must follow the guidelines by the comptroller’s office as to awarding a bid; it appears that the county only does it when they feel like it. Is this honest and concerned government for our people?
