As Predicted

For John, BLUFBy Gerry Nutter.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

This is The [Lowell] Sun, Reporter Aaron Curtis, Tuesday, 8 August 2017.

Here is the key paragraph:

It was revealed during a School [Financial Sub-]Committee meeting Monday night that despite different specifications, NRT remained the only bidder for the contract.  The difference is the new bid from the company is asking for $134,000 more for their service and will be using older buses, according to School Business Administrator Gary Frisch.
And here is the quick background:
The School Committee approved the three-year contract in May.  However, a review of the contract by City Solicitor Christine O'Connor led to the determination that, as the contract was written, only NRT would bid.
And School Committee Candidate Gerry Nutter takes a victory lap, as is appropriate.
