Roads Inc. is UPSET!

The 2016 Street Reconstruction Project was recently awarded to Gulf Atlantic Constructors Inc.

In the email below, Roads Inc. begins what I hear has become an all out campaign by the Company to run Derrik Owens out of his job as City Engineer.

Roads Inc. was loving Derrik Owens when he was approving contract bonuses a few years ago that weren't earned and no-bid emergency road work after the flood.

I'm sure Cody Rawson and Ashton Hayward have NEVER discussed this at Redfish Harbor meetings.

Brad,
During the pre-bid meeting, the representative from APAC specifically asked you if you would award this project if it went over budget and you answered that your budget is your budget and you would not be able to award it if the money isn’t there.
We have a published budget through addendum #1.  The total awarded amount exceeds the budget by approximately 27.5%. 
Could you please explain to all of us how you justify awarding this project based on your statement at the pre-bid and the resulting bid results?
Thank you,
Josh Haggard

I will be making a detailed records request to get to the bottom of whats going on.

Oh the irony!
