There have been many objections ' f
made liv Milo contractors mid others to 1 f
glaring Inconsistencies In the Bwcifi
cations of the Public Works Department,
which it is claimed prevent many re
sponsible contraclois from bidding on
The attention of the Ililo Hoard of
Trade has been called to the sjiecifl I
cations and plans submitted for the Ililo
sewnrnge system, which it Is nlleged nre 1
indefinite in so far as the amount ofvvork
to be done. The Hoard in turn hnve
taken the matter ti witll Suptcrinteiideiit
Mollowny, for correction, If possible. 1
Objection is made to the clause in the 1
specifications which calls for bids on
work "lo Include n complete system or
such portions as the Itugiueer may de
cide." The specifications it is alleged,
should set forth definitely the number of
linenl feet of sewers embraced in the
contract, but the Department reserves
the right to grnnt n contract for n portion
or for the whole sewnrnge system, lt'is
claimed that a contractor having inside In
formation from the Department ns to
the ntuouut of work contemplated has
the advantage over other bidders nud is
enabled thereby to submit 11 lower figure.
To do n small nmoiint of work will re
qhire ns extensive n plant ns is needed
for n lnrger job. It require approxi
mately the same outlay in tool,, team
nud plant to construct 2,500 feet of sewer
n to construct to 000 feet. Obviously, a
favored contractor with definite infor
mation in advance of the amount ofvvork
projected, would have n decided ndvmit
nge over his competitors.
It is also set out in the specifications
that the drawings and plans referred to
"nre not necessarily those, submitted be
fore lettinjt the contract." The Depart
ment tuny niter the plans nud specifi
cations nfter receiving the contractors'
bid upon the plans first submitted nud
agreed upon. It is claimed this is un
fair nud any devia'tioti from the original
plan would not entitle the bidding con
tractor under the wording of the specifi
cation, to extra compensation for ad
ditional work done. It is stated by
contractors thot there is 110 plausible
reason for not furnishing to prospective
bidders n definite statement of the
amount of work to be done nud any sub
stitution of other work not hid upon
would work a hardship on the contractor.
