Yuba City has every right and in fact an obligation to its citizens to put contracts out to bid. Government contracts should always go out to bid at regular intervals. Competitive bidding helps keep the process more transparent and honest (hopefully anyway). Remember these contracts are paid for with our tax dollars in most cases. If a company (and its employees) are doing a bang up job and at a reasonable rate there is no reason they can't win the bid once again. Monopoly's in contacts are a breeding ground for corruption and influence peddling. Any contractor dealing with the government should be well aware that contracts turn over, contracts come and go. Employees often follow the contract, changing companies when contractors change. I don't appreciate the attempt to pull on the communities heart strings to keep a government contract. Please chime in on how you the people feel about this...
