According to theAgenda Cover Memorandum of Public Works Director Wayne Zingsheim, the contract between the City and John's cotained "an optional one-year extension" which is being exercised for $45,552.
Consequently, we have to question whether Zingsheim
is exercising the City's "option" so as to end-run the bidding requirement.
And by not attaching the contract to his
memo, it looks like Wayne
might be trying to hide that end-run from both the Council and the public.
