County board not "shopping locally".
I would like everyone in Delta County to know that when we are being asked to "Shop locally" during the holiday season, that our own county board dos'nt even abide by this. They just voted to hire an "out of state" management service company to provid catering for the Delta County Jail. This means the local service was dropped, without oppurtunity to rebid the contract. Nor was anyone else from the area allowed to bid on the contract. I wish the Daily press would of provided more information in their front page article concerning this issue. By the way the 40,000 dollars they are going to save, isn't going to happen. If so I would like to know how. Unlike other counties such as Dickenson the previous kitchen providers were not county employees and from what I hear, what took two people to do may now take three. I am sure this will reflect in the new contract price some where down the line.
