; Collusion In City Bids? A bomb
shell was launched in the council
Wednesday evening when the paving
committee in its report to the city ex
ecutive body announced that the sev
eral bids received from local contract
ing companies for the paving of sev
eral of the city streets had been reject
ed for obvious reasons. The commit
tee reported that it suspected collusion
of the contractors concerned in the
paving of Scott street, Mound street,
Brown street, the alley between East
River and Federal streets and between
Tremont avenue and Federal streets,
and the alley between Main and Brady
streets and between Twelfth and Thir
teenth streets. The committee report
ed that three bids had been received
for each of the improvements. Owing
to the very striking similarity in the
amounts bid and to the fact that the
price offered is far in excess of that
usually asked for brick paving and be
cause of the fact that the bids were so
that each company would receive about
an equal share of the work, the com-
mitiito ccw -fit- in T-r iorf oil (ho hir13
In addition, the committee suggested
that, while it had no positive proof
that there was any collusion in the
bidding, it would be advisable, to
change the material called for in the
contracts and pave the streets with
concrete, in which competition could
be secured and lower prices obtained.
The report was favored by the council.
