Some see that $2.6 million as more palatable than the consolidation cost.
While money is important, better communication is vital as well. Let's not forget that. Rich James
It remains to be seen what could happen to enforce it, Rich. Uncharted territory.
I agree with better communication, too, Rich. But hiring consultants, assistants and not bidding out contracts ensures higher costs that we don't need to be paying for that better communication.
Amen, Tracy. That is typical as to what ails Lake County. The NIMBYs don't want any change and thus we don't diversify and grow. Contrary to what some thing, the steel mills aren't hiring like they used to. And that has been the case for more than 30 years. Rich James
Eric, I should have been more clear, sorry. Tying too fast. The commissioners are bidding for the equipment. But they are feeling pressure from the pro-Motorola folks to not bid. They are feeling pressure to just go with Motorola.
Yes, bids for a single center.
Let us not forget one thing about consolidation. The initial cost for equipment is the big ticket. That is the case with any start-up. Rich James

Eric, Motorola may very well be the best. But the best may be willing to lower their costs if they have some competition.
