Go slow on meter contract

November 06, 2013

The tentative award to the low bidder for the upgrade of the area's water meters may not prove to be for the best ("Water meter bid is backed," Nov. 5).

Wouldn't it be a prudent for the award to be predicated on the successful low bidder to prove themselves by modifying a small section of the city's meters before tackling the entire area? In my humble opinion and based on what I read, it reminded me of the old saying, "When in doubt, do nothing."
