Built that bridge back after the tornado. 00:04:09
You know it was forever the driver, but they didn't put a light on. 00:04:12

So if I may, for all the remaining projects, these contracts are to supplement work, especially in the events of emergency, but 00:08:04
also to ensure items are completed in a safe and timely manner. 00:08:09
We're attempting to diversify a higher priority trade services by awarding these contracts to more than one vendor of the same 00:08:16
trade. 00:08:20
These contracts utilize 3 or 4 proposals received by the Tuscaloosa Bills vendors. 00:08:25
And we are requesting these contracts are for a one year period while we review the effectiveness of of using contacts in this 00:08:29
manner. 00:08:34
While we further evaluate staffing levels and of course our goal is to utilize these as minimally as possible. 00:08:40
All right. 00:08:48
This one in particular. 00:08:49
Is for. 00:08:51
As needed by several elect. 00:08:53

You call who's available well. 00:10:46
Our thought was in an event where we may need something quickly, we may have one contractor that's more readily available than the 00:10:52
other. And so that applies for painting, carpentry, electrical and HVAC. We did two contractors for all three of those. 00:10:59
OK. I just wonder. 00:11:07
Because I know they're. 00:11:10
Test this bills. I just wonder I guess as who's. 00:11:12
At that time, yes, Sir. Yes, Sir. And we might still get quotes on an individual basis to determine who's going to provide us the 00:11:16
best price for each each item needed. 00:11:20
