Auburn amends procurement code at session
All other articles passed without change.
The proposed town budget of $5,054,873 passed without change. The default amount is $5,0007,108.
That represents a 25-cent increase in the town tax rate, from $4.31 to $4.56.
The code, based on the one used by Manchester, would have standardized the procurement process for all town agencies and would have eliminate possible abuses or favoritism in the procurement process.
"The Board of Selectmen have been working for the past couple of months on amendments to the town's current purchasing policy that I had proposed, with assistance from town counsel and the town's finance director," said Herman.
"The mosquito control article also had discussion concerning cost versus effectiveness," said Herman.
"Probably the majority of voters present didn't personally support the expenditure, but the article was not amended in any way," he said.
