Background: PVE is governed by a Municipal Code. On a number of occasions one will hear in council that The Municipal Code “shall govern”, “takes precedence” or “prevails”. There have been a number of instances where it did not appear for some major services that city council had not solicited competing bids for safety (police) engineering, and external audit, or made the bids available for public review. Or made the bid selection process more transparent in terms of best value.
Question: Are you familiar with the City Of Palos Verdes Estates Municipal Code? Are you familiar with its direction relative to “Purchasing Systems” which requires a minimum number of bids, solicitation of bids etc.? Will you follow the guidelines of the code?
