I went to the local school district building today to request information on what the lawn care company was paid per school last year. Getting the info was not a problem, but they kept telling me that the schools could not be bid on. I asked if it was because the contract they currently had was for multiple years, and they said no. I was told "We aren't bidding it out for next year" a few years ago from the guy that was in charge, and at the time just walked away. Since then I have talked to several people that have worked for state institutions and that have been on the school board, and they have all said it is illegal for them NOT to bid it out. Does anyone have any experience with this?
