Has anyone had a good experience working for local government. A couple years back, when we were in the middle of a snow storm, the City of Cincinnati called me up and said they wanted a bid for several streets they were unable to clear. The City was unprepared and out of salt also. But before I said sure, I will bid them, they told me they would fine us if the streets were not cleared in time. Once I heard that, I said no-thanks and hung the phone up. I thought to myself, why-in-the-hell would I spend time working for someone at a low price and be subjected to late payment or the possiblity of no payment. When I already have enough work that and I am paid my price and on time. I have had a bad taste in my mouth ever since, which has prevented me from submitting any bids to local government. Maybe things are different elsewhere, I just refuse to work from someone that threatens us.
