Here’s The Scoop…Chain Of Command….1/13/09…Agenda Item 12B…”Mac” Of All Trades…

HATS AND MORE HATS…

Guess usurping that “chain of command”…is “old hat” …pun intended…over at the the VFD…so the Vice Mayor …has moved on…

We know about the apparent breech in the chain…that came when the Vice Mayor asserted and inserted himself  as Code Officer…with the Athena Boys…previous post….Charter be damned…

We hear after “making a scene”…”someone” made a complaint…to Code Enforcement…then “someone” called BSO…

In the Charter…a Commissioner is to go to the Manager….

QUOTES PER JERRY….

Consent agenda item 12b….

Readers might recall how the Vice Mayor “pretending” to be inquisitive on the dais ….spoke of the ISO requirement for the VFD’s firetruck to be under a canopy….

SURPRISE!….

In this item the Commission is being asked to consent towards the purchase of the canopy…by the Town….for $25,200 plus permit fee…(Manager Colon)

Did the town put it out to bid?…NO!…

In the backup material there are 4 bids…and each one shows the person getting the quotes is….drum roll….

Jerry McIntee…Vice Mayor…VFD Training Officer…Code Enforcer…and now Town Purchasing Agent!…WOW!….

On 1/5/08 at 2:52 pm…….there is an e-mail to Marta Isla…the Town Manager’s secretary….

‘Hello Esther, how are you today? I wanted to go over a couple of things on the proposal I sent you. Our company is very confident in the quality of our products and workmanship. I did let Jerry know that we guarantee the lowest price, using top quality products and workmanship. That is why our company gives a 5 year  warranty on our workmanship, most companies give 1 year. So I just wanted to put this in writing for you. We guarantee the lowest price using top quality products and workmanship. This means all the measurements and materials must be the exact same top quality. Thank you for your time, Thanks again, Trista Evans
