It is interesting seeing this come full circle. Brings back a lot of memories.
First off, I left employment with said DoD Contractor a year ago next week.
Second point is, that service on Council clearly requires either other employment or retired. So "Double Dipping" would include any and everyone on Council depending on what other outside income one has. Demonizing any one particular industry is utterly reprehensible.
The letter from Excel is on the public agenda for the Utility Board next Wed. Full and open.
If no budget, it's the 2013 budget minus 10% as I understand it, not plus.
Hopefully, we don't go there.
"According to Serco's information, Pico works for the Space and C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) business unit of Serco based out of Colorado Springs supporting the US military. The fleet management business unit is completely different and is based out of Reston, Virginia. So it would be unlikely that Pico had anything to do with getting Serco this contract. "
Correct. I have had no involvement at all with this contract in any way and have consistently recused myself from any and all discussions or actions involving Serco and the city.
Contracting for services is entirely within the Mayor's responsibility. The Council has nothing to do with contracting.
Jim, I think you need to read my comment again.
