Five vendors have submitted proposals in an effort to secure a contract for data imaging for the Oswego County Clerk’s office.
During Wednesday’s meeting of the legislature’s Community and Consumer Affairs Committee, County Administrator Phil Church said that the bids were received Friday and that it had been the most number of proposals ever received in the history of the contract.
He said the next step will be to have a panel of five review the proposals once the names of the vendors have been redacted. He added that the vendors will each receive a confirmation letter that their proposals have been received.
I missed getting a column in last week because I just got too busy, and by the time I realized it, my deadline had come and gone.
That’s not a good thing! We have our four “boys” down here, plus four grandchildren, and we have been going, going, going.
Monday, we got in a bit of fishing, but mainly we gathered a big bucket of oysters. Tuesday the guys and I were out fishing all day. We caught lots of lady fish, and a good number of silver trout. We added a few gaff-topsail catfish, and yours truly caught a nice Spanish mackerel about 4 pounds.
Members of the Oswego County Legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee held a lengthy debate Monday on the Freedom of Information Law and whether sitting legislators should be required to make a written request for records and information.
The committee had before them a 1998 opinion from New York State Committee on Open Government Director Robert Freeman, which referred to a former legislator seeking records.
Legislator Shawn Doyle asked if it was the most recent opinion. County Administrator Phil Church said that the county attorney had obtained the opinion. He suggested Freeman be contacted to determine if there is a more recent opinions.
Court cases have changed the outcome of some of the older opinions.
According to Fulton City School District officials, good attendance is critical to school success.
The district launched the “It’s COOL 2B in School” attendance campaign during the 2011-2012 school year to raise awareness about the importance of good attendance habits.
The district recognizes that being in school, arriving on time and ready to learn are habits that are essential to being respectful, responsible and safe members of the community.
As part of this awareness campaign, more than 2,000 Fulton students and their families signed a pledge committing to good attendance habits. Good attendance will not only help students succeed in school, but will lay the foundation for habits that will support their success in college or a career, officials said.
