Approval Process Notes:
  • Fountain reviews and approves but states "We might have to reduce what we get".  Why not get more for what you pay?
  • "Mayor has contracted", No bids, no fuss.  Just do it!
  • Process these two invoices for services performed with no contract in place.
  • This exchange is 6 months before a contract is written.
Dick Barker, what type of Garage Band Accounting Department are you running??

Is it illegal for the mayor to award no bid contracts?

Some things about Pensacola never change except the manner the cronyism is spread. In the old days our community leaders would just hand out Collard Green Pots full of money to get matters taken care of on behalf of their friends.

Social Media Manager? Or as I like to call her, the Mayor's personal Facebook Selfie Taker.
