Saratoga Town Council holds discussion regarding bids and purchase policy leading up to rec department pickleball event
July 27, 2023
Expenses presented from the recreation department were the catalyst for a conversation regarding bidding processes, approval policies and the spending of public money during the July 18 meeting of the Saratoga Town Council.
Councilmember Kathy Beck, who serves as the council representative to the recreation commission, presented a bill for $741 from Cowboy Couture for t-shirts and discussed a $780 bid from Hangry Services, Inc.. Both bids, which were for the pickleball tournament on July 22, seemed to have brought the Town of Saratoga into a legal pickle.
